The Phantom Of The Opera
13 March 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Lightning Warrior is the name that the Indians have given Rin Tin Tin and in this serial the great German Shepherd finds himself out west with George Brent investigating who's been stirring up the Indians and specifically who killed young Frankie Darro's father and Brent's brother. The brother was an army agent who was in the territory trying to find out the identity of the mysterious Wolfman who walks around in a Phantom of the Opera outfit and gives out mysterious orders to his underlings. I can give you a hint, it isn't Lon Chaney, Jr. or Taylor Lautner.

It takes 12 chapters to unravel the mystery if you want to sit through the thing. In a year Brent would be in 42nd Street and be set in his career with a long term Warner Brothers contract. Oddly enough Brent had enough adventure in real life in Ireland as a personal courier for Michael Collins during the Rebellion. God only knows what he thought of this drivel.
