In the Summary Court yesterday, Tam Ho, a contractor, claimed $152.5 from the Pathe Phono Cinema Chine, of 8 Wyndham Street, being the amount paid by the plaintiff to the defendants for the purchase of three films which the plaintiffs guaranteed or warranted to be in good order and condition, but which were in fact in a damaged and spoilt condition. The defective films included 'Mary Stuart,' 'The Monkey Man' and 'Aunt Sally's Outings.' In cross-examination, the plaintiff admitted that all the films he had bought from the defendants had been second-hand. M. Lemaitre, of the defendant firm, said the plaintiff had every opportunity of examining the films prior to their being packed, and every one of the 16 films was in perfect condition when packed.
