The Exploits of the German Submarine U35.

The management of the Royal Theatre, in addition to their splendid programe, have managed to obtain for three days only, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next, "The Exploits of the German Submarine U35," actually showing the torpedoing of a merchantman out in the Mediterranean. A picture that brings home to us these things that are only reported and then forgotten. This film was taken from the deck of the U35. You see the torpedo discharged, the doomed ship quiver as she was struck, then later sink into the sea; but little or nothing is seen of her crew or what was done with them. It is safe to say that of all films dealing with the war there has been nothing more thrilling. Germany is condemned by her own cinematograph records.
