A bright and interesting entertainment was provided at His Majesty's Theatre on Saturday evening, on the occasion of the tri-weekly change of programme, the head-liner being a Goldwyn" production entitled "Fighting Odds," a powerful drama in which the settings, photography and acting were not the least pleasing features., The picture unfolded a story of the business world in which a woman's wit was' matched against the cunning and well-laid plots of an unscrupulous man. The leading role was cleverly interpreted by Maxine Elliott, who made good use of the opportunities to display her dramatic talent. The Co-operative Weekly dealt principally with scenes of topical events in America. The other subjects were a Christie comedy and the fifth chapter of the "Scarlet Runner" serial, which is being followed i'witli -i interest by a. large number of local ■ picture patrons. The programme will be repeated this evening.
