They were kind of proud of it...beginning with:

Albert E. Smith Presents GREATER VITAGRPAH'S Stupendious Melodramatic Photoplay Serial "VENGEANGE ---AND THE WOMAN." (and followed that with:)

"A Stupendous, Spectacular Melodram of an Oath of Hate - Hurled in Hot Blood By an Outlaw Against the Man Who Brought Him to Well-Earned Justice -- and the Trail of Fiendish Villainy That Followed In Its Wake." (Then the publicity writer settled down a little and told us what all the shouting was all about): "Here is what you have waited for --- a serial in which every episode will cause the red blood to leap in your veins --- a story crowded with action that is true, that is real, that imperilled lives in the making.

It's staged on the lofty summits and in the sweeping valleys of the majestic Rockies. Torrents that rage and foam run through it. Its characters are men - yes, and women too - who can ride and rope and shoot.

And one great superman - Henry Blake - who thought life precious enough to fight for it, no matter the odds --- who protected his love-mate, Bessie Blake, fearless daughter of the Rockies, with all his wondrous brawn and brain and iron nerve.

VENGEANCE---AND THE WOMAN has reached the very peak of sensational melodrama. Its perils, its melodramatic heights will make film history--- will spur the jaded mind to quick and tense response. It is DIFFERENT from any serial yet produced.

And in every thrill-laden episode are the greatest, most courageous photoplay serial stars in the world: WILLIAM DUNCAN and CAROL HOLLOWAY.


Now that is the way to promote a film...a quiet, confident understatement of the facts. Especially when it stars a superman. Or, in the German version...a ubermensch.
