The best of all the movie serials

Even though the Dick Tracy serials, Capt. Marvel, both Batmans, and Superman were very enjoyable, you cannot beat this movie for continuous unique action scenes and storylines that were made up just for this serial and not just using up "stock shots" made for other serials. If I were to pick one serial to be the very best one I would have to pick this one.
