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.

incomplete copy of the serial
25 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good followup to King of The Royal Mounted, but it relies too heavily on footage from the first serial. The only known copy of this serial unfortunately is incomplete. Much of the sound is missing from various chapters, and occasionally action music is inappropriately dubbed in along with sound effects that don't match the on screen action. Tom Steele replaces David Sharpe as Allan Lane's stunt double as well as Bradley Paige. Again the doubling is obvious, but Steele appears as a henchman in the last two chapters. Maybe somebody will find an intact copy of this serial as well as DAREDEVILS OF THE WEST and the two Lone Ranger serials.
