A Confidence Trick (Great Britain) - This detective story will please any audience. Some of the complications in it are more than ordinarily interesting and will keep the people guessing until the denouement. The photography is clear and the acting is excellent. There are a number of thrills introduced which help in maintaining the interesting features at a high standard.
