Additional Information: 

Liberty is a western film serial released by Universal Pictures in 1916. In the film, an American heiress, Liberty Horton, is kidnapped by a Mexican rebel and ransomed. Serial films were popular in the early twentieth century and consisted of a long film edited into chapters. The chapters were then released to theaters in consecutive order, and each episode ended with a cliffhanger to keep audiences coming back to see the next chapter. Westerns were a popular film serial genre, along with crime fiction, comic strip characters, and science fiction.
