King of the Forest Rangers came in 1946, as America was getting back into peace time. Republic was still issuing four serials a year to distributors, but with WW 11 ending, they had lost the Nazi-Japanese enemy angle and had to rely on more standardized plot lines. King of the Forest Rangers starred Larry Thompson, a standard leading man, with no reputation among young serial fans as with Clayton Moore. Helen Talbot, who had been Don Barry's leading lady in westerns, may not have been Linda Stirling's equal, but did a passable job. My favorite chapter shows her strapped to a paper shredder about ready to go toward a whirling blade as the chapter ends. Come on guys, admit it. If you were 8 or 9 years old at that time, and a little less sophisticated than today's kids, you would have loved it.
