Storyline

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.

Serial review
30 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This serial ,once available only in fragmented form,has been restored by the Serial Squadron and is available in DVD to the general public. This exciting serial is the second in the series,the first being King of the Royal Mounted. Both star Allan Lane. This time around King and the Mounties are fighting the three Axis powers who are bent on hindering Canada's war efforts with the aid of The Falcon,a bat shaped plane. Director William Witney keeps things moving at a fast clip for twelve chapters. The supporting cast includes Anthony Warde,Douglas Dumbrille and Duncan Renaldo as Axis agents. Camera work,score ,location shooting,are all up to Republic Pictures excellent standards.There were some missing sections in both sound and picture from the existing print. The Squadron has expertly filled in these gaps with stills and restored sound effects and have come up with a very enjoyable chapter play.
