I wonder if any of the ladies he left waiting at the church will attend his funeral.

It is one of my post Witney era serial favourite. Spencer Gordon Bennet and Fred C Brannon made a bunch of good serials together. Only the very last of the Republic ones, in the mid fifties, are less good. But all the ones before, I love them all.
In this one, many spectacular fist fights, as we all love in Republic - and only Republic - serials. And we find here one more time the exquisite Roy Barcroft, as one of the lead bad guys. Actually he is here the head mastermind's associate. I particularly like the woman, the female hero - who here fights as a man. I love that. Whaoo!!!
I am surprised that no one has commented it yet.
