The Hawk's Trail is a 1919 serial featuring King Baggot and Grace Darmond. The serial was written by Nan Blair, and directed by Woody Van Dyke under the supervision of Universal Pictures.

Plot Synopsis

Sheldon Steele (King Baggot) is a sleuth who is hired by Jean Drake to unravel a mysterious burglary. "lron" Dugan (Harry Lorraine), the master crook, was after the Drake fortune and had assumed the identity of William Drake, the uncle of Jean and Claire Drake (Grace Darmond and Rhea Mitchell respectively), to get it. He gave Claire a comfortable home because she was in love with his son, Bob Dugan Junior (who knows nothing of his father's plans), but when he discovers she's a threat to his plans, he sends her to a swami's home where she is to be abducted; Steele poses as the swami and foils the abduction. Eventually, Jean's freed and Dugan's captured.


While the film hasn't yet surfaced either online or in any notable institution in it's physical form, posters and other promotional material for the serial still exist.
