SECRET STEEL
31 January 2003 | by (WEDOWEE,AL) – See all my reviews

The secret formula in the movie was for flexible steel, not for bullet-proof steel. I saw this serial in the Revoli theatre in Rome, Ga. in 1942. I especially enjoyed Grant Withers character in this flick. I wish that he had made more of the hero type movies......Umsum
