HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE.
Viola Dana, whose rise in motion
pictures .[has been as meteoric as her success on the dramatic stage, will be seen in anew Mfetro-comedy, "Opportunity," at His Majesty's Theatre tonight and on Monday night. Miss Dana's new vehicle is said to be. one of the most amusing and entertaining stories she has ever done. In "Opportunity," Miss Dana plays a tomboy, Mary Willard. The complications in which her hoyden inclinations involve her makes Mary a most delightful and winning heroine. Dressed in ■ boys' clothes, she attends a widely-advertised prize-fight at a prominent athletic club. Previously two of the leading characters, played by Hale Hamilton of " Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford "fame on the stage, and Edward Abelesy "stage a.nd screen star of " Brewsters' Millions," have planned to give a chance in life to the man who enters and takes the unoccupied seat in the box. The two men start to tell the " boy " of his good fortune, when a sportsman in an adjoining; box protests at what he believes to ■' be their annoyance of the youth. A fist-fight begins, which removes* the centre of interest from the ring to the boxes.
