Silent film leading lady Priscilla Dean's best years were behind her when she made Crimson Runner. Still, her ability to convey emotion in the most subtle, economical manner possible had not dimished. Dean is cast as the "brains" of a European criminal gang. But she's not all bad: in fact, Dean and her cohorts are modern-day Robin Hoods, stealing from the very rich to give to the very poor. A kindly-and handsome-aristocrat convinces Dean to give up her life of crime, but not before she has settled accounts with those responsible for her father's death. The hero of Crimson Runner is played by Bernard Siegel, an actor better known in the 1920s for his Native American characterizations.
