Dr. Jonathan Martin [Ch. 1]: The Amsterdam Fault, a volcanic fissure opening into the subterranean fires miles below New York. Sea erosion has sealed up that vent, but a few depth charges will smash through and bring about an earthquake and a tidal wave that will be catastrophic. The Ghost isn't bluffing!

Serial review
4 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even the opening credits as a police car races at high speed down a city street is exciting!The plot in summary is that "The Ghost" seeks revenge against the people that he feels are responsible for his brothers death.With the aid of a mechanical device,he can make himself invisable.The special effects for this are excellent.Ralph Byrd reprises his role as Tracy,and Ralph Morgan is his adversary.Music,photography,acting and direction are first rate.Another excellent Tracy serial from Republic.
