This 15 chapter serial is considered to be "the last of the adult serials". This is a beautifully photographed, edited action melodrama, with excellent acting in all roles. Produced in Wilkes-Barre, PA., it has crisp editing, fast action, and carefully lit and composed interiors and lush pictorial exteriors. This is a serial of great complexity with the director, the photographer and title-maker always in absolute control. There is a hint of Griffith's influence with experimental lighting and camera angles occurring throughout the film. The extraordinary rhythmic momentum of the film is never lost despite the films complex plot turns. This is the best of the surviving serials from the silent era.
