Dr. Elise Bork (Tala Birell) and her henchman Lang (Douglass Dumbrille) are the Nazi chiefs, posing as scientists. Lang has great influence on some of the tribesman, especially with Chief Maata (Napoleon Simpson') who wants to keep Kyba (Clarence Muse) from becoming judge over all the tribes. A Secret Sword is the key to the ruler of the jungles, and the holder of this secret is sought by both the British and the Nazis. Courtney is the only white man who ...

Enjoyable trash
24 October 2010 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Often hailed as one of the worst serials- I'm watching it again for the the first time- mostly because I picked it up by mistake.

Its a 1945 released film set in 1939 about Nazi's in the jungle trying to use the natives to take over the world.

Its done on the cheap and is more than slightly racist, but its very much of the sort of thing that Hollywood did at the time. I'm not defending it just explaining. It's amusing in a way that most serials are. The trouble seems that its a bit too juvenile and the recaps of what happened are deadening when watched in rapid succession.

its a lower tier serial- enjoyable but trash
