Pearl vs. the Hooded Terror
12 April 2015 | by (Rego Park, NY) – See all my reviews

Munitions magnate Winthrop Waldon names his daughter Pearl as heir to his empire disappointing his brother Ezra, nephew Haynes and niece Naomi. Soon after, Waldon is murdered by the Hooded Terror who the police confirm must be a member of the household, also including Pearl's sweetheart and Waldon chemist Harry Gresham. With her standing as head of her father's company (remember this is still WWI), Pearl stands to be next in line for murder and spends the remainder of the serial dodging accidents and a near prison execution.

The version I saw was a condensation shown to USSR audiences in 1925, so a lot of the plot was removed but very little of the action which this serial had aplenty. The Hooded Terror now ranks as my all time serial villain due to his persistence and strength. It is also nice to see a lot of Fort Lee location shooting here. I really hope this becomes available to a larger audience in the near future.
