'Hurled from a 60-foot cliff'
Scenes from Neptune's Daughter (Herbert Brenon, USA, 1914) give an idea of the more spectacular plot points.
Photographs included in this bi-fold pamphlet show Annette (played by Annette Kellerman) vowing to avenge the death of her little sister mermaid, saving her lover the King and diving off a 60-foot (18-metre) cliff with her hands and feet bound.
Kellerman performed all of her own stunts in her films.
