A British four-reeler, "The Rasp," will also be shown [as a second feature to "The Yellow Passport"]. "The Rasp" was directed by Michael Powell, who also directed "Two Crowded Hours." It is an ingenious murder mystery, in which a journalist saves an innocent man from conviction at the hands of the police.
The cast includes many famous stage-names, among whom are C.M. Hallard, Thomas Weguelin, Phyllis Loring and James Raglan.
