Montrose, Burton. Burton Montrose was created by T. Hayes Hunter (Professor Morlant) and appeared in the film serial The Crimson Stain Mystery (1916).

Burton Montrose is a Mad Scientist. He has created a chemical formula which should increase the intelligence of ordinary people. Instead, it turns them into evil men. Montrose makes the mistake of dosing himself, and he becomes “Pierre La Rue,” a.k.a. “The Crimson Stain,” the wicked leader of a gang made up of men whose Montrose’s formula transformed. A reporter and detective eventually stop Montrose.
