Description by OLDIES.com:

Considered by many to be the finest serial ever made, The Adventures of Captain Marvel chronicles the exploits of "The World's Mightiest Mortal" as he combats The Scorpion, a hooded villain intent on obtaining six optical lenses that, when aligned properly, turn ordinary stones into gold! Highlighting the serial were the fabulous flying sequences by Republic's ace special effects team, Howard and Theodore Lydecker. Combining a wired dummy photographed against real backgrounds in natural sunlight, with spectacular take-off leaps and landings supplied by action ace, David Sharpe, the final effects are still as fascinating today as they were in 1941. The Adventures of Captain Marvel marked the very first time a comic book superhero's exploits were transferred to the silver screen, and the resulting 12 chapters have yet to be equaled for excitement and entertainment.

Rating 5.0 adventures of captain marvel Movie Lover: from redcar, England UK -- June, 7, 2010

i remember as a 12yr, old kid 1n 1956, going to see this exellent serial at my local cinema, on saturday afternoons, and now 50yrs on this serial is still as exciting today as it was all those years, ago, but republic, pictures who made this serial in 1941, always were the best when it came to serials, tom tyler, was in a class of his own playing the leading role as captain marvel, and lets not forget the great frank coughlan jnr, who played billy batson, frank coughlan jnr, was one of the greatest and finest film stars of the early monogram, and republic, films, and serials, sadly he passed away sertember 2009, aged 93, but like tom tyler, they both gave so much pleasure to the world of serials, and will always be remembered with great affection, this is witout any doubt the finest ever serial ever made for the special fying effects and gripping action, harold richards, redcar, united kingdom.
