A pretty movie star is stalked by a strange gang whose leader is infatuated with her in this superior Pathé serial written by genre specialist H.H. van Loan. Released in 15 chapters between May and August of 1920, the serial offered a glimpse into the still mysterious world of movie-making, The Third Eye, of course being the camera lens. Eileen Percy, a blonde former leading lady to Douglas Fairbanks, starred as the imperiled movie actress, with Warner Oland, the Swedish-born future "Charlie Chan," as the stalker, and Jack Mower, popular action lead, as the hero. Olga Grey and Mark Strong also appeared under James W. Horne's deft direction.
