Girl with the green eyes

Girl with the green eyes
   Opening on Christmas Day 1902 for 108 performances at the Savoy Theatre in a Charles Frohman production, this four-act Clyde Fitch drama was directed by its author. Clara Bloodgood starred as the jealous Jinny, who learns that her brother Geoffrey has committed bigamy, marrying Ruth Chester despite his previous drunken union with a maid. Geoffrey confides his dark secret to Jinny's husband John Austin, the maid's brother, who refuses to divulge the information, despite Jinny's machinations, including a suicide attempt. John saves her, but critics complained that the happy ending marred the play's inherent tragedy. A motion picture version was made in 1916.
