j HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE. I June Elvidge has the place of honour in the World feature "The Tenth .Case." to be screened at His Majesty's Theatre to-night j and as Claudia, it is ; stated, she' does the best work of her career. The play is distinctly above the average, and grips from first to last by reason of the artistic development of the plot and the dramatic : situations which arise. Claudia is a '■ beautiful young wife of a wealthy man whose nephew, in revenge for having i had his allowance discontinued,' con- : trives to compromise Claudia in her husband's eyes. The circumstantial evidence is certainly strong against her. and when the husband sues for a divorce the judge declares that in nine cases out of ten circumstantial evidence in such matters is correct. Claudia, in desperation at the thought of losing not only her husband but her child, also arranges a similar set of circumstances which in an equally convincing manner compromise the judge's own wife. This causes him to modify his views, and Claudia is given partial custody of her ba.by. But the'story moves through j still further exciting incidents before j a happy reconciliation takes place be- , tween the separated counle. The act- : ing throughout is excellent, and the attractive womanliness of Claudia is a. convincing feature. Incidentally, there ! are some very fine dresses.
