I first saw this Film Serial recently on the "Burnt Rubber" multi DVD pack. I was surprised at the level of excitement and action in this film. It has some pretty good fight scenes and the usual stunts that appear in vintage cliffhangers such as this. Plus you get to see a variety of vintage 1930's automobiles being pushed to their limits. I know these machines are a far cry from the pavement burning beasts of the 70's. But to see what Grandpa, for some people Great Grandpa and beyond, used to screech the tires in, from motorcycles to huge buses, is priceless. And for those interested in silent movie fare, Burn 'Em Up Barnes is a remake of a 1921 movie by the same title.
