The Girl and the Game

On January 2, 1916, the first episode of the 15-part serial The Girl and the Game was released. Some scenes were filmed on California's Santa Catalina and Santa Cruz islands. Helen Holmes was the daredevil star who was said to have performed all her own stunts.


"Plunging from a high cliff into the sea, one of the most difficult and dangerous feats of its kind ever undertaken for a motion picture camera, is but one of the several dangerous tasks accomplished by fearless Helen Holmes." – Reel Life, January 1, 1916
