hear the song "Runaway June" and read about the silent film serial
19 May 2015 | by humbugmswSee all my reviews

"Runaway June" (1915) was produced by the Reliance Film Co. with female interest in mind. The story was about a young married couple, and the wife was not very successful at household wifely chores. She is so embarrassed by being a failure, that she runs away. Violence and cliff hangers, the staple of serials, were avoided. There was serialization of the story in Ladies Home Journal and the Saturday Evening Post, two magazines with a large female readership. Reliance held a contest, with a female from each of the 48 states winning a paid trip to the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. Despite all this hype, the film was not a big success. It didn't offer enough excitement. It sounds like it was more like a light sitcom from television. If you want to hear the song written in conjunction with the release of the film, go to my YouTube channel at:
