Chapter 1: Although the breeches buoy is connecting the two ships, the line is not visible in the long shot. See more »
Top of the line thriller from Republic's serial division.
One of the best from Republic serials division. Actual plot, a dashing hero who can act, a heroine who at least starts out feisty (before she starts getting knocked out every episode), great cliffhanger endings, and a set totally demolished by the stuntmen in every chapter. Okay, the sea serpent ain't much, but everything else is!
