Storyline

The chapter-crunched version of this 196 minutes, 12-episode serial from Republic finds Canada being bombed mercilessly by a mysterious-enemy plane (shaped like a boomerang) called the Falcon, under the supervision of Admiral Yamata, Count Baroni and Marshal von Horst, chiefs of the Axis Fifth Column in Canada. No one can identify the plane until American inventor, Professor Marshall Brent, and his daughter Carol arrive with a new type of airplane detector. This poses a threat to the Axis chiefs in preparing western Canada for an invasion and they have him kidnapped by local Quisling Gil Harper. RCMP Sergeant Tom King attempts to rescue Brent, but the inventor is killed when a plane in which he is held captive crashes into a riverboat. Carol, determined to carry on her father's work and with King's aid, manages to prevent the enemy agents from capturing the detector, and destroys the device (many chapters later) when the agents make a last desperate attack on the cabin where it is ...

Quotes

[first lines]
Radio newscaster: What is the death that stalks by night? Is the reign of terror we have experienced caused by a ray gun or remote control torpedo? No one knows. In our extreme emergency, the United States has sent her eminent scientist, Professor Brent, to aid us in detecting its source. Although there have been no attacks for six days, Professor Brent has been hard at work closely guarded by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The Mounties vs. the Axis
30 September 2007 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Nazi, Fascist, and Japanese forces each send an emissary to Canada to pave the way for an Axis invasion. A choice weapon is the Falcon plane, one which can take off from a vertical position and fly noiseless dropping bombs on unsuspecting cities. After a wave of terror, Professor Brent (along with daughter Carol) arrives to operate his aerial detector which is able to locate the Falcon plane. The Axis spies knowing the detector's interference will delay their invasion plans, kidnap Brent and force him to fly to Tokyo to divulge the secret of the invention. Sgt. King of the Royal Mounted is able to locate Brent, but not before the inventor gives his life to save King. The Axis spies (operating through their quisling Harper) launch a battleplan to weaken Canada's defenses, but King is able to stop them at every turn until they plan to kidnap Carol and force her to rebuild the detector in their hideout, inside an active volcano. Excellent followup to King of the Royal Mounted with the emphasis on Axis rather than 5th Columnists and more action than in the previous serial. Lane is once again very heroic and Page & Warde great as the henchmen, but Harper's character seems somewhat insignificant since he has no communication with King until the last chapter and doesn't interact with anyone else in the serial, why have him in there and just have Yamata contact Blake or Stark directly? Great action sequences & special effects and the last chapter in the volcano is a classic. Slightly better than the previous KOTRM. Rating, based on serials, 9.
