There never was a scene in this serial with Pauline tied to a conveyor belt approaching a buzz saw, either in the footage which survives or in that which does not. Very detailed plot summaries of all 20 original episodes show nothing remotely similar to that occurred in any of the episodes. A number of other silent films did contain such a scene. It was referred to as a "Blue Jeans" scene because it originated in an 1890 stage play of that name (see the book "Melodrama and Modernity" by Ben Singer, 2001, Columbia University Press, pages 183-185). Blue Jeans-style sawmill scenes were in the film version of the play Blue Jeans (1917), as well as the serials Perils of Thunder Mountain (1919) and The Timber Queen (1922). See more »
The present distributors of the DVD (Grapevine Video) have created new title credits for each episode, in which they state it was produced by the Eclectic Film Company. Actually, it was produced by the American branch of Pathe Freres, and was distributed (not produced) by Eclectic who handled the USA distribution of Pathe product at that time. See more »
The original 20 chapter 1914 US theatrical version was edited down and rearranged into a 9 chapter version and released in Europe in 1916. See more »
I saw more old movies like from 1909. I didnt like this movie cause director not able to keep everyones body part on the camera. 1 scene you cant see the guys head. Other scene he putted the camera so much right side we couldn see the left side actors mostly we watch door (right side on the scene)
That much basic rule if you couldnt able to do that that means there is not much talent. More old movies better than this movie. I couldnt watch all of them cause of this nonsense mistakes. Just keep the camera on the people basic rule.
