Trivia

This is considered to be the first true "cliffhanger" serial. Many early serials were more like what would today be called a series - each episode's story was self-contained. However, each episode of this serial had a suspenseful ending (i.e., a "cliffhanger"), and viewers had to return to the theatre to watch the next chapter and see how the characters escaped the danger in which they were left.
