The sequel to 1914's popular serial The Exploits of Elaine, the plainly titled The New Exploits of Elaine was once again filmed in and around Ithaca, New York, by George B. Seitz and starred the irrepressible Pearl White in the title-role. Although Elaine and her savior, master detective Craig Kennedy (Arnold Daly), had defeated the devil-worshipping Wu Fang (Edwin Arden) in the 14th and final chapter of the previous serial, the wily villain was back to terrorize the civilized world in general and Elaine in particular in 10 new chapters. Also back for more punishment was Elaine's beau, intrepid newspaper reporter Walter Jameson (Creighton Hale), this time helping Mr. Kennedy and Elaine launch a newfangled torpedo in their fight for democracy. Alas, democracy was threatened yet again in the third and final "Elaine" serial, The Romance of Elaine, produced later in 1915.
