Serial Review
21 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This fast paced serial is another good example of Republics skill of using scenes,endings and the like from other serials, combined with a new screen play to produce an action packed cliffhanger. Roy Barcroft has a field day with the dual role of the police Commissoner and the mastermind out to take over the city. He is ably assisted by the likes of henchmen Drew Allen,Tom Steele and Dale van Sickle to name a few. His efforts are in vain when G man Clayton Moore and policewoman Ramsey Ames get on the case. Serial devotees will notice several endings from their favorites, but everything is so tightly edited that it all seems to make sense. Add a rousing theme and score by Mort Glickman, crisp photography,and Yakima Cannut doing co-directing,there's always something exciting going on. Twelve chapters of non stop action.
