~The management of the Vaudette with a view to fulfilling the great demand for vampire pictures has
secured for today only the four part Mutual meeter picture
The Toast of Death with Louise Glaum In the starring role. This picture is said to
be exceptional in construction and acting and no one touches that high mark in Sirenism. Poppea (Miss
Glaum) is a girl who marries a wealthy Indian prince but at the same time retains her intimacy with a
former lower. The husband finding them together proposes the toast of death filling two wine glasses and
putting poison and lets his wife choose the lover shall drink and which he shall drink in this manner the
picture gets the title: The Toast of Death.

The Motion Picture news comments upon Miss Glaum s performance as follows: Louise Glaum is at her
very best in this picture. Miss Glaum plays a vampire so well that there is a doubt if any other woman on
the screen today could eclipse her in the part. Miss Glaum’s work is that of the finished picture player. The
pantomime isn’t. Not only does she use her facial expression but her eyes, her lips, her hand, her arms and
her body in a correct portrayal of the type of woman she represents.
