Lee and Daniel are back with more silent film this week. This time they tackle the surviving version of "The Perils of Pauline" (1914), which is a series that's famous for establishing tropes it actually had little or nothing to do with, like the cliffhanger. Repetitive plots; fun stunt work; silly women wanting agency; blackface; and strange family relations are just a few of the topics brought up in this one. The hosts also cover a listener comment and what they've been watching as of late.
