Viola Dane sacrificed her beautiful chestnut curls in the cause for art when she undertook the stellar role in Tile Microbe,” the appealing Metro drama picture by writer June Mathis from Henry Altimus’ Alnslee’s Magazine story in which the little star will be seen at the Hose theater today. Miss Dane’s ringlets were much in evidence in “Satan Junior” and “Blue Jeans,” but they had no place in ‘The Microbe” so Viola just made a little wry smile of regret and snipped them off. Some of the early incidents in her” newest photoplay called for Miss Dane to appear in Troy’s clothing, wearing a cap. Hence the bobbed hair. But the beauty of it is that the tiny star is even cuter, in the opinion of her director, Henry Otto, than she was when her curls fell over her shoulders.
