‘Constance Collier, the favourite of countless playgoers, and whose film portrait appears [above], has proved herself a wonderful screen actress. In The Code of Marcia Gray you will see that she has not failed to grasp the fine scope afforded her; and in The Tongues of Men, her first film appearance, as also in Macbeth (the Triangle production), she scored instantaneous success.’ (Pictures and the Picturegoer, London, Saturday, 14 October 1916, pp. 41 and 42b)
