Sad, Very Sad...
6 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Serials were the staple of production for the middle tier studios. Columbia, Republic, Universal and the poverty row independents. Universal featured competent actors, well thought out plot lines and had the Flash Gordon franchise. Republic had the best in action, special visual effects and stunt-work. So what did that leave Columbia? Not much and they did not put much into this effort. Columbia was not called at that time "the Germ of the Ocean" for nothing and this serial is a perfect example.

Fifthteen (15) chapters of drudgery and what for? To find some plates used in counterfeiting money. No super weapon to conquer the earth like in 'THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL'. No super villain from outer space like 'MING THE MERCILESS'. No Nothing! There is not SeventyNine (79) minutes worth of plot here let alone 279 MINUTES! The featured players of Jack Holt and Evelyn Brent are particularly joyless and not very attractive. Holt's glory days were long over and Brent's were over by 1930.

We can only recommend picking up this one (1) if you can find a copy for $02.00 or less. Better yet con one (1) of your friends or your library to get.
