lustrates the mental interest of the man is The return of Peter Grimm (2 January, 1911), which deals with the presence of the dead. A related subject of interest was dual personality, which prompted his acceptance of The case of Becky (I October, 1912) by Edward Locke and The secret (23 December, 1913) by Henri Bernstein. The latter revealed the expertness of Belasco as an adapter far better than his work on Hermann Bahr's The concert (3 October, 1910) or on The Lily (23 December, 1909) by Wolff and Leroux. Had Belasco not been a manager, the effect on his own work might have been different. As it is, he has sought variety, he has followed the changing times. His interest in emotion, in picturesque situation, in unusual atmosphere, in modern realism, is evident in the long list of plays by himself, and in other dramas he has produced. Sentiment for the past encouraged him to further the career of William C. De Mille, son of his early associate, and while The Warrens of Virginia
