At the time of this serials release,Republic was using new screen plays,incorporated with stock footage from their other serials. This serial is one of the better products as serials were now in decline. Keith Richards and Robert Bice are adequate in the lead roles. Noel Neil,is good as the helpless leading lady,and as in many of Republic's serials and features, Roy Barcroft steals the show as the master heavy. Half the fun is recalling the serials that the stock footage,usually the cliffhangers,were taken from. Unlike some serials made by other studios using the same technique,Republic kept a degree of quality throughout their last serial release,KING OF THE CARNIVAL.This serial is not the best by any standard, but worth viewing all the same.
