ENTERTAINMENTS.

HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE.

"A MAN'S WORLD."

"A Man's World," a Metro feature production starring Emily Stevens, star of "Daybreak," "Alias Mrs Jessop," and "The Slacker," will be screened at His Majesty's Theatre to-night. It is said to be a picture of the better sort, full of action and dramatic intensity, and provides an unusually strong part for the star. Written as a play by Rachel Crothers, and presented on the stage with. Mary Mannering as star, it has been adapted for the screen for Miss Stevens's use by June Mathis, and directed by Herbert Blache. Vital human problems are presented in "A Man's World." The heroine, Frankie Ware, the novelist, tries to solve these both in her books and in her life. Her success iii some ways, and her failure in others, furnish strongly dramatic I moments. Frankie is loved by Malcolm Gaskcll, the publisher who brings out her book, and by David Powell, a poor j young violinist. As the • story pro- ' presses she discovers which man's nature is of pure gold, and which of baser metal. "A Man's World" presents many surprises, and has an ending that is entirely appropriate to the great problems discussed in the play. The second instalment of the serial "The Scarlet Runner "will also be screened, and diverting incidents are promised.
