Trivia

Edmund Cobb, the uncredited actor who is easily recognizable to Western fans as the masked Rattler in every chapter, is nowhere to be seen in any other capacity as the story progresses, and when the real Rattler is finally unmasked in the final chapter, he turns out to be a different (credited) actor entirely.

A good serial, but a poor transfer by Alpha Video
7 May 2006 | by (Mullica Hill, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I just purchased Alpha Video's DVD of this serial. The story itself is a good one, though, as usual, there are a few "cheats." These, I suppose, are always to be expected.

I was disappointed, however, by Alpha Video's transfer which obviously came, at least in part, from a beat-up 16mm TV print. Beware - the entire ending for Chapter 2 is missing and there are many "rough spots" throughout the print. Sound quality ranges from mediocre to downright poor.

Even so, I enjoyed the serial - it's very exciting and it's really fun to spot some of the uncredited actors in it, especially Gene Autry and Smiley Burnette, and, if someone else came out with a much better transfer, I would buy it.

I have not seen VCI's tape of this serial nor do I know of any other DVD release of it. Alpha Video's release is not so bad as to be totally avoided, but it is disappointing nonetheless. I had expected better.
