Of all Republic's serials, I consider this one to be one of the most underrated. The outdoor scenery, the choreographic fist-fights, sharp cinematography, the presence of the beautiful Helen Talbot, and some of the more thrilling chapter-endings in a while help make this opus a highly recommended entry. It was originally meant to be a Mountie serial but for some reason it became a Ranger cliffhanger. The plot concerns the search for a specific Indian rug upon which is the map to hidden treasure. The storyline runs smoothly and inventively, much more effectively than others in a similar genre. Republic were and are always the Lords of the Serials, and this Larry Thompson cliffhanger, directed nobly by the prolific Spencer G. Bennet and Fred Brannon, is a very pleasing effort. Try it!
