The third of four films bearing the title, famed silent serial queen Pearl White is introduced as a frustrated factory worker who aspires to become a dramatic actress. She joins a touring theatrical troupe managed by handsome but pompous Mike (John Lund), but fame and fortune elude her because she’s unable to suppress her natural rambunctiousness. In desperation, Pearl takes a job at a movie studio, and soons becomes world-famous as the star of such cliffhanging, tied-to-the-railroad-tracks serials as The Perils of Pauline (hence the title of this film).
