| Badly Preserved Silent Serial
The premise of this is MURDER and how the existence of a symbol, the double cross, plays into it. The double cross is shown on all caption stills, which hampers the reading of the words and the caption letters are too thick and/or bold to decipher and I would gladly shake anyone's hands who could sit through this long movie experience. One could make some semblance of understanding from what little one could make of it, but again frankly it really isn't worth it. In the scenes where people are reading letters or telegrams to them, again, it is all very faint and this makes the whole thing very hard to sit through for one hour, much less about six. "A Woman in Grey" was a great silent serial, and I meant to review that at the time, but where that grabbed you from the beginning with people you cared about, this mishmash with no cohesive captions makes time with a silent serial for escapism a serious workout and a serious waste of time. I do admit to not finishing this and encourage someone to prove me wrong. But please find a better preserved copy.
