Trivia

This was to be the first in a series of films based on a popular series of pulp novels. The poor box office returns cancelled plans for any further film productions. See more »

Goofs

Outside the Broadway Ticket Agency, posters on the window are for films, not live shows, which were never sold at such agencies; one of them is for Tarzan and the Leopard Woman, which was released in 1946, not in 1936, the year in which this scene is supposedly taking place. Another is for Bohemian Girl, which would have been OK, except its for the 1946 re-release, and pictures a generic image of Laurel & Hardy, as they often appeared in their other films, but not in this particular one.

Quotes

Don Rubio Gorro: That dirty little tramp from my office, she could never lead them to Quetzamal.
Capt. Seas: That's what I'm counting on. Lots of money is at stake.

Far too camp
19 March 2006 | by roltzeroSee all my reviews

I started reading the Bantam paperbacks in 1968 as a boy in England. They are a tremendous read and for years they promised, '..And there's a feature motion picture and a television series in his future' and for years I waited, only to be disappointed by this far too camped up film version. If they wanted to be amusing they only needed to treat it seriously, the far fetched aspects would have made strangers laugh and fans overjoyed. As for casting, Ron Ely's okay but Clint Walker would have been my choice (certainly when I started reading the books anyway) as for the 'Monk' in this movie, casting is appalling, the fellow is fat, Monk was like ' a good looking gorilla' and therefore an Ernest Borgnine, Bob Hoskins look-a-like would have been more suitable. No mention of Ham ever having a moustache in the books, but Renny was good casting. Having said that, like other commentators I usually watch the first half-hour and the last ten minutes which are set in period New York and do retain the flavour of the books. The rest of it is sadly clap-trap. And why in the film 'Rocketeer' did they substitute Howard Hughes for Doc Savage (as it is Doc who appears in the graphic novel) that might just have rekindled his cinematic career.
