THE TREY O'HEARTS
1914 / by Louis Joseph Vance
Starring George Larkin, Cleo Madison and Edward Sloman.
Second Squadron edition upgraded with a huge collection of now 75 original photographs, many from the personal collection of original cast member and featured villain Edward Sloman -- including amazing behind-the-scenes production shots. A great serial jam-packed with action about Seneca Trine, an embittered man who vows to take revenge on Alan Law, son of his enemy who crippled him and ruined him in business. One of his twin daughters, Rose, is in love with Law, the other, Judith, sworn to kill him. The sign of death is a "trey of hearts" playing card with three bullet holes shot through it. This groundbreaking serial brought what was to be known as the cliff-hanger into full form and was the first to allow deathtraps and danger to drive it all the way through. It all builds to a wild murderous pursuit during a lightning storm, crashes, disaster, and even a shock/surprise ending. A sensation upon its original release.
