Not bad, for a later serial
3 December 2000 | by delmo-2See all my reviews

If you're a George Reeves fan, and can track this serial down, it's definitely worth watching, especially to see George sport a "Prince Valiant" haircut. Working on this low-budget serial probably prepared him for the low-budget on the series that would catapult him to stardom, The Adventures of Superman.
