SOS Cost Guard Movie Lover: from New York -- March, 10, 2010

For my money, this is definitely one of the best serials ever produced. Bela Lugosi is at his best as the villain, and the "special effects" for the disintegration gas were fun to watch (remember- this was made in 1937). The cliff-hangers are what you would expect from a serial, and the story is easy to follow.

Brilliant serial. Movie Lover: from Norwich, England UK -- April, 18, 2005

This is my favourite serial of all time. Great location filming, superb model effects, marvellous action sequences, good story and, finally, superb performances from Lugosi and Byrd. I can't recommend this highly enough. Also, Alpha have acquired an excellent print of this serial. Top marks to all concerned.
