War and Peace

“Manchester Palace. – WAR AND PEACE, presented by Tom Arnold, impresses by the magnitude of the production, novel methods of obtaining effects, and the all-round quality of the cast, in which Frederick Valk is an outstanding figure. Thanks to an ingenious use of slides on a screen the 30-odd scenes are staged with celerity. Even so the opening night here ran nearly 3½ hours. Speeding up has since taken place.” – The Stage, 15th July 1943
