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.

Problem Here!
21 February 2003 | by (California, but not where the cool folks live) – See all my reviews

As far as I know this excellent serial only exists in incomplete form, missing about half a reel of picture and something like eight reels of sound. Fortunately, the good people at The Serial Squadron have promised a new DVD with subtitles, music and effects for the soundless portions, but no date of release is set. Check their website. This is a wartime serial, specifically making villains of all the Axis powers without the usual anti-Asian junk. Wonderful stuntwork in the dozen-or-so fights and surprisingly good special effects. Well-directed and not nearly as silly as some serials. RECOMMENDED
