Three faces east


Three faces east
   Anthony Paul Kelly's three-act thriller, heavily rewritten by producer-director George M. Cohan, opened at the Cohan and Harris Theatre on 31 August 1918 for 335 performances. German spies enlist the aid of Fraulein Helene to take the place of a dead English woman and to contact Franz Boelke, who aims to plant a bomb at a cabinet meeting in London. However, the plan is foiled when Helene is revealed as a British counterspy and, in the process, falls in love. A silent motion picture version appeared in 1926, remade as a "talkie" in 1930.
