Veteran Western heroine Marguerite Clayton starred in the title role of this 15 chapter Fox serial which was rather obviously inspired by Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. A gang of Tripolitan pirates swooped down and kidnapped 13 wealthy brides, whom they held for ransom. Enter an American Navy lieutenant (John O'Brien), who in chapter 15, "Thundering Vengeance," managed to rescue Bride 13, Miss Clayton, imprisoned with her sister, Bride 12 (Mary Christensen), in the villain's submarine. Written by director Edward Sedgwick, who ought to have known better, Bride 13 was basically laughed off the screen and Fox quickly curtailed their serial aspirations.
