Storyline

James Redd was the true cause of Sir Harman Blench's greatness. Redd had discovered a secret preparation which, when added to an ordinary dye, absolutely prevented the pigment from fading out. "Blench's Fadeless Tints" had won a fortune, and a baronetcy for Sir Harmon. In spite of the fact he cheerfully allowed Sir Harmon to realize the major part of the gain from his discovery, James Redd would never tell the secret of the wonderful dye. Sir Harmon tried every means in his power to persuade the old man to divulge it, without success.

Devoid of conviction
2 November 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The eighth of the series of the "Chronicles of Cleek." In some respects this is a meritorious offering, but it contains inconsistencies, elements that are intended to be gripping and interesting seem to be devoid of conviction. A well produced picture photographically, but hardly up to the standard this series has maintained heretofore. - The Moving Picture World, July 18, 1914
