Did You Know?


This was the earliest documented motion picture serial to be shown on commercial USA television, with Chapter One first telecast Wednesday 23 August 1939 on New York City's pioneer television station W2XBS; succeeding chapters were shown throughout the weeks that followed. In later years it reappeared quite regularly, from one end of the country to the other, as countless more television stations went on the air, from the late 1940s well up into the early 1960s, and it never seemed to lose its appeal to each new generation of fans.

The is a great movie for history buffs of the old movie and entertainment scene.
2 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those of you who did not grow up in the days of old-time circus and traveling shows, you may not know the name Clyde Beatty. Beatty is hailed as one of the worlds most famous animal trainers. My father, who is ninety-six, and still in sound mind, saw Beatty in Raleigh, NC back in the thirties and both of us truly enjoyed this movie. The animal scenes were wonderful and reminiscent of the old circus. Supported by Syd Saylor, a noted and well educated actor and comic, added the light touch in just the right places. This film came as one of the offerings in a 50 pack DVD collection and is one of the few really classics in the bunch, but it was worth the cost of the collection to see and have this movie. Clyde did all the 'stunts' himself and his talent in animal training is relished. Enjoy this for what it is, a fun adventure featuring a true American talent.
