This is one of the very few surviving silents - all the negatives were lost when his archives were destroyed in an air raid in World War II - by Weimar cinema's greatest action hero, Harry Piel. Much influenced by the serials of Feuillade, Piel engaged and surprised his audience with pulpy and suspenseful plots, spectacular stunts which he almost all did himself, dangerous animals, and so on, but always retaining a cool stylishness when solving crimes and fighting the bad guys.
