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.
