Storyline

Diabolical mastermind Harry Crowel, a.k.a. Prisoner 39013, escapes and, with a seemingly endless supply of henchmen, sets out to destroy all holdings of industrialist Horace Granville, who put him in prison. One target is an amusement park, home of the three Daredevils of the Red Circle, who perform death-defying stunts. Aghast at innocent lives lost, our three heroes swear to capture No. 39013. It'll be harder than they suspect; the villain is holding the real Granville captive, and with a near-perfect disguise, has taken his place! Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

One of the better movie serials
16 November 1999 | by (Dunstable, Ma) – See all my reviews

This is a good example of what old movie serials were all about. This had plenty of action, outdoor locations and original storylines. This was better than most "B" movies of it's time. Republic made the best serials and this was one of the best.
