BIOGRAPH FILMS
Paradoxical Altruism of a Money Lender Shown in
TradeMark "OLD ISAACS, THE PAWNBROKER"r
Iow beautiful, and yet how rare
is ulostentatious charity. It is the
luinouxits, oxintixilant ray iii the
axini-lla if lxxixi avirtue  The por-
tratal aof this laudable quality is
the thi' Ime of this Biograph story.
A poor xvocman lies ill with fever
in her a'Iualid apartment. She is
attendced by her six-year-old daugh-
txr, who    goes  to  the   Charity
Seci'ty for aid, and the best she
gets is the cheoring intelligence
that the' xxould send investigators
;unxdl inx a xvevk or so. At length
the little one goes to the pawnshop
Iith her dollie to get ax few pennies
xwitii xvlich to buy at least a few
sticks of xxood, when    the kind-
healted  old  awnbroker becomes
ireiited a  n at once aneliorates
fIc pear xxanax'a aoxdition with
food, clothing and medical atten-
ion, sh,  ittng the sunshine of hope
over the little home.    While the
story is of alt apparent lachrymal
natlli, there  is enough  of the
lighter shades to reliee it, the
lIawnshoiir  sex-s  affording  many
)its of gooi, clean comedy.
