Description by OLDIES.com:
The brave-hearted Commando Cody, "Sky Marshal of the Universe," rockets into action to save the earth in this classic 12 episode sci-fi extravaganza. A string of mysterious bombings striking at our nation's defense systems precipitates the call for the invincible Cody (George Wallace), who's equipped with a state-of-the-art flying suit and space ship. Tracing the source of the attacks to the moon, he travels there and encounters the nefarious Retik (Roy Barcroft), ruler of an advanced civilization. The moonmen are cultivating an atomic substance called lunarium which will power their awesome weaponry in their bid to conquer the Earth. The chilling ray-gun assaults, nightmarish volcanic eruptions and out-of-this-world conclusion make this a sensational galactic adventure. One of Republic Pictures' most engaging serials, Radar Men From The Moon demonstrates the studio's remarkable creativity as well as its resourcefulness. This cliffhanger incorporates footage from their previous chapterplays Darkest Africa (1936), King Of The Rocket Men (1949) and The Purple Monster Strikes (1945), the latter of which also featured Roy Barcroft as the notorious space fiend.
This collection features a selection of episodes from the campy 1950s science-fiction serial RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON. Commando Cody (George Wallace) is sent to the Moon after its power-mad ruler Retik (Roy Barcroft) begins destroying strategic targets on Earth in the hopes of taking over the planet. Features creative special effects by Republic Studio's Howard Lydecker.
