Storyline

Foster (Charles Miller (IV)', owner of the local stagecoach line in Canyon City in the 1880s, has received a Federal Franchise Commission grant and is rushing to complete a new road through the lawless Comanche Strip with the aid of his daughter, June (Kay Aldridge), and his construction foreman "Red" Kelly (Eddie Acuff). Unbeknownst to them, their supposed friend, land-and-cattle dealer Martin Dexter (Robert Frazer), and the town lawyer, Silas Higby (Ted Adams), have plans of their own; should Foster's road see completion, homesteaders would occupy the strip and ruin Dexter's plans to buy the 500,000 acres for cattle-grazing land.

Indian scout Jim Brady (Budd Buster)sees a supply wagon driver by "Red" and June being cased by the renegades, alerts the work-camp crew and then rides to summon Captain Duke Cameron (Allan Lane) and his U.S. Cavalry troop but, before they arrive, Foster has been killed along with many of his ...

Trivia

Chapter 11, originally entitled "Horror of Hades", had to be changed to "Cavern of Cremation" when the Hays Office (MPPDA - Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America) refused to permit the word "hell" or its alternatives to appear in a film (or chapter) title. It was changed and received Code Seal of Approval # 9051. See more »

It isn't lost anymore

Republic's "Daredevils of the West" is a 1943 twelve chapter serial once considered lost. This action-filled cliffhanger starred Allan Lane and Kay Aldridge. It's only been publicly screened in the U.S. twice in recent years.

Through special arrangement with Brigham Young University, Paramount Pictures, and Swank Films it was first shown at SerialFest in Newtown, PA, in the Spring of 2008. This past October it was run a second time at the Lone Pine Film Festival in Lone Pine, CA.

Now this exciting serial is coming to America's heartland for the first time. It can be seen at the Memphis Film Festival in Olive Branch, Mississippi June 3-5 of 2010. It will be personally projected by BYU archivist James D'Arc.

So, why doesn't BYU make it available on a DVD for all serial fans to enjoy?

Edit: Question answered by Boyd Magers of "Western Clippings." BYU has the print donated to them by the late Jack (Valley of the Cliffhangers) Mathis. Paramount has the rights to the film, and they have deemed the negative flawed and unacceptable and, as such, unmarkable.
