Across the Mexican Line (Solax)
SOLAX MILITARY RELEASES
We notice with a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction the announcement of the Solax Company regarding their Friday release.
Beginning April 28th they will start to release their regular Friday military pictures, the first subject of which is entitled “Across the Mexican Line.” This wide-awake company seem always to be on the alert for an idea that is novel, new and of topical interest. Now what could be more acceptable to the exchangeman and exhibitor than these military pictures dealing with a controversy of current and national importance.
Topics that are before the general public always prove to be big money-getter for the exhibitor, and this is the sole aim of the Solax Company–to turn out pictures that will redound the profit of their patrons, the exchangeman and exhibitor in greatest measure.
Quite aside from the merely entertaining purposes of these pictures they have the added virtue of being of exceptional educational value as many of the productions will be taken at places of historical interest.
This enterprising company will deserve the support and co-operation of all those who are in favor of raising the standard of the picture and making it a medium of not only wholesome entertainment but practical and useful instruction.
