Salomy Jane

   Paul Armstrong's four-act drama, sometimes known as Salomy Jane's Kiss and based on a Bret Harte story, opened on 19 January 1907 at the Liberty Theatre for 122 performances, produced by Theodore A. Liebler. Critics appreciated Eleanor Robson as a young woman molested by a would-be lover and H. B. Warner as a mysterious stranger who murders the molester. Salomy Jane helps the stranger escape lynch mob justice even though she knows he had his own reasons for killing her attacker. The play had a brief return engagement beginning on 2 September 1907 and motion picture versions were released in 1914 and 1923.
