“A Magnificent Production at Griffin’s Opera House. The five part war drama ‘The Ordeal’ was presented to local movie patrons last evening at Griffin’s Opera House, and created a deep impression on those present.

The film shows the cruel methods by which the Germans carry on with their warfare, the murdering of women, and aged men for not revealing secrets which were of importance to their country. The different scenes are vividly portrayed, the quiet village scene being very picturesque, while the scene of the firing line is carried out with a vigor that is most realistic. …  This film will again be produced this evening.”
