Quotes

[first lines]
Cpl. George Hale: Weekly report, Sergeant. Nothing in it as usual.
Sgt. Christopher Royal: What's the matter, George? Bored with your job?
Cpl. George Hale: As a matter of fact, I am. It sure isn't like the good old days when Dad was around - running down claim jumpers, smugglers and road agents. You weren't around then, were you, Sarge?
Sgt. Christopher Royal: No, I wasn't, but I saw enough killing and shooting during the war to last me a lifetime.

Not up to Republic serials normal standards
24 February 2001 | by (Berlin, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

There is plenty of action in this serial; but not enough to bring Jim Bannon up to hero standards. (He was much better in the Red Ryder series). This may be another case of a leading man being cast because of his resemblance to ace stuntman, Tom Steele. Stuntwork throughout the 12 chapters is very good with Steele working effectively with Dale Van Sickle and Ken Terrell. Production value is also somewhat lower than average. For the serial enthusiast, however, it is worth viewing.
