[in death cell awaiting execution]
Do you think I'm afraid of death?

Zarnoff, the world's most notorious spy, is sentenced to death in the gas chamber for his activities. Zarnoff escapes through a drug he ingests before being brought to the death chamber. For the rest of the serial, he wages war with the man who sent him there, Dick Tracy. Very good cat and mouse game between Tracy and Zarnoff, couple with good action sequences, make this serial well recommended. Watch for the stock footage of the Hindenburg disaster. Great score as well. In terms of serials, 9 out of 10.
