Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

Advertised as the true story of an American actress married to an Egyptian prince, Under the Crescent starred Ola Humphrey as herself, with Edward Sloman as the prince and William Dowlan as a distinguished Britisher in their employ. Each of the chapters detailed an episode of Miss Humphrey's supposedly exotic life "under the Crescent," but the serial was not popular and was discontinued after chapter six, "The Crown of Death." Under the Crescent was written by actress Nell Shipman, later to become famous as the star/producer of a series of Northwest melodramas, and the supporting cast included Miss Humphrey's second current husband, Orral Humphrey, and popular starlet Edna Maison.
