The Mystery Of The Double Cross, Episodes 1 - 8
Retroformat Films On 8mm Presents

Dirs. William Parke, Louis J. Gasnier.

While traveling to America via steamship to receive his inheritance, Peter Hale (Leon Bary) receives an inscrutable telegram warning him to “beware the Double Cross.” He later is thrown together with a mysterious woman (Mollie King) during a panic over a submarine sighting. In the tumult, he sees a double cross symbol on her right shoulder. Could this be linked to the telegram, and the strange stipulation in his father’s will that Peter will marry a woman identified by the sign of the double cross? Even more unsettling is the will’s ultimatum that if anyone else marries the woman, then it will be he, not Peter, who inherits the Hale family fortune…

Live piano accompaniment by Cliff Retallick.
