The Crimson Ghost---attired in black hood and cloak, skull mask and surgical gloves---skulks to an abandoned mansion and informs his henchmen, Louis Ashe (Clayton Moore) and Bain (Rex Lease),of his plans to seize the Cyclotrode, a device invented by Dr. Chambers (Kenne Duncan), that is designed to detect-and-repel atomic bomb attacks. The Crimson Ghost intends to use the Cyclotrode as an offensive weapon for sabotage and extortion via its ability to stop any electrically-controlled mechanism. Written by

An important plot point is Duncan's trailing the crooks to their underground hideout using a concealed TV camera in a getaway car. But Duncan has already been to the hideout in a previous chapter when the kidnapped inventor is accidentally killed while saving Duncan from a death ray. This renders the rigged escape and trailing bit meaningless. See more »
very good serial. a lot of suspense and (for the time, hey, even now they will hold up) fast paced fight scenes, and a fast paced story. Buy this serial (but try to find your copy in black and white) and have fun with this classic.
