Hands Up is a lost 1918 serial featuring Ruth Roland as the lead actress.


When Echo Delane, a famous journalist, is kidnapped by a group of Native South Americans who believe her to be their lost princess, her fiance - a detective known by the moniker "Hands Up" - follows her to South America to get her back. To rescue Echo from her captors, "Hands Up" must run the gamut of a series of perils thrown in his way by the tribe's high priest, a man who makes Hands Up's life a misery, by first arranging Echo's abduction and then bedevils him as he searches for the girl. In the process, Hands Up somehow manages to change his facial features to those of a very different man - Two-Gun Carter, played by George Larkin - but in the end, he defeats the evil high priest and safely rescues Echo Delane.[1][2]

All of the episodes of Hands Up are lost, and due to the fact that they are over 100 years old at this point, it has an extremely low chance of surfacing.
