Mail Tribune 100

July 3, 1916


Bessie Barriscale is announced for today and tomorrow in a Fourth of July photo feature, "Bullets and Brown Eyes." Barriscale of the wondrous eyes and gracious ways, so wantonly feminine at one moment, so exquisitely at another; a dainty, yielding exponent of non-resistance in the presence of an assertive man, a cunning schemer behind his back, withal tender in his worst extremity she impersonates, not so much this or that individual member of her sex, but the sex itself. In that art she is supreme, one of the most remarkable screen actresses of today. So effective in certain roles as to be in a class by herself.

"Bullets and Brown Eyes" presents other merits than those of Barriscale. It is a romantic drama of modern war, the whole being rendered pleasing and effective by good settings, stirring battle scenes and clever acting. In the last named division, Bessie Barriscale, who, as Countess Olga, proves conclusively that bullets are no match for brown eyes.

A Triangle Key comedy titled "A Village Vampire" with Funny Fred Mace as the victim, will show at this popular photo theater.
