This is one of the greatest of Hollywood's serials and made by the Tiffany of serial studios: the great Republic Studio. Made in l941, this is a classic serial to watch if you've never seen one. 'Slingin' Sammy Baugh, a real-life football hero back in the early 40s is the hero. Fascinating B-actress, Pauline Moore, is his plucky companion. Together they tear through this movie, dodging exploding oil wells, car wrecks, blazing fires, floods. Wonderful production values, super music and editing. The kiddies should have the thrill of their lives with this knockout entertainment
