|This thrill-a-minute serial was the longest running of the entire silent film era. It was produced between 1914 and 1917, and consisted of 119 almost weekly episodes. The initial 48 starred HELEN HOLMES, one of the most celebrated silent screen serial queens. Each of these delightful one-reelers features Helen as a telegraph operator employed by a railroad. Sometimes she simply performs the required heroics. Other times she becomes a damsel in distress who does not wait around to be rescued by a man. She uses her ingenuity to not only extricate herself from a potentially life-threatening situation but to heroically apprehend the bad guys.|
1.THE LEAP FROM THE WATER TOWER (1915 Episode #9). A surly railroad employee is fired after drinking on the job and provoking a fight. He seeks revenge by attempting a devious act of sabotage. Helen is sure to save the day by performing some daredevil acrobatics. The locomotive most prominently in evidence here is no ordinary one, it is one in a series of ten that back in 1915 were the largest engines that had ever been built.
2.THE PAY TRAIN (1915 Episode #31). Helen uses her wiles as she endeavors to thwart a gang of rowdies who are plotting to rob the title train.
3.IN DANGERS PATH (1915 Episode# 33). Helen tangles with two creepy criminals who are wanted for a boxcar theft.
4.THE OPEN TRACK (1916 Epidode #63). The villains are counterfeiters who have selected a busy train station to pass off their phony money. You know they wont succeed because Helen is on the scene. A highlight: Helen races on a motorcycle side by side with a speeding train. She manages to grab onto the trains rear and leap on board! Silent films with music score.
50 minutes total.
