Storyline

Professor Hargrave (James Durkin), a noted scientist, is in Indo-China seeking an ivory-disc that is engraved with the formula for a deadly gas. Dr. Barshan ('John Davidson' (qb)), his assistant Wang (Frank Lackteen) and his henchmen are also after the sacred formula and will stop at nothing to obtain it. Professor Hargrave's daughter, Pauline (Evalyn Knapp), and flight-engineer Robert Ward (Craig Reynolds (I)') do their best to protect Hargraves from the band of villains.

Action-packed Universal serial
17 December 2001 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

An enjoyable cliffhanger from Universal's early sound serial period with a good cast and storyline. Somewhat dated production hurts it a bit but overall an admirable effort from producer Henry MacRae and director Ray Taylor.
