Trivia

This was the earliest documented motion picture serial to be shown on commercial USA television, with Chapter One first telecast Wednesday 23 August 1939 on New York City's pioneer television station W2XBS; succeeding chapters were shown throughout the weeks that followed. In later years it reappeared quite regularly, from one end of the country to the other, as countless more television stations went on the air, from the late 1940s well up into the early 1960s, and it never seemed to lose its appeal to each new generation of fans.

Good Animal Action
18 April 2006 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm not going to criticize the movie. There isn't that much to talk about. It has good animal actions scenes which were probably pretty astonishing at the time. Clyde Beatty isn't exactly a matinée idol. He's a little slight and not particularly good looking. But that's OK. He's the man in that lion cage. We know that when he can't take the time away from his lions to tend to his girlfriend, he will end up on an island with her and have to save the day. Someone said earlier that it is a history lesson. The scenes at the circus are of another day, especially the kids who hang around. I didn't realize that even back in the thirties, they sailed on three masted schooners. It looked like something out of 1860. I guess that's the stock footage they had. No wonder the thing got wrecked. They're always talking about fixing her up. There's even a dirigible. It tells us a little about male female relationships at the time, a kind of giggly silliness. But if you don't take it too seriously, you can have fun watching it.
