A former member of the Imperial Russian army, Boris Bullock arrived in Hollywood in the mid 1920s, a discovery of legless American director Robert J. Horner. He starred in a series of Horner produced B-Westerns under the moniker Kit Carson before signing with pioneer film-maker Fred J. Balshofer and another name change, this time to William Barrymore. He was William Barrymore in Triple Pass, a melodrama whose plot has been lost to history. The implication, of course, was a non-existent relationship with the Barrymore acting dynasty, a common silent screen tradition that also yielded Art Mix, Richard Talmadge and William Fairbanks, all of whom traded on names made famous by others.
