Clues lead a young couple to a Pacific isle, where the two find Mystery Island to rescue the girl's father, who is being held prisoner by the evil Captain Mephisto, a pirate from 200 years ago who uses his Transformation Machine to travel forward in time and disguise himself as one of the four owners of Mystery Island.
Manhunt of Mystery Island was later edited-down and re-released as a film on television in 1966 with the title Captain Mephisto and the Transformation Machine.
This 1945 Republic serial is notable because several elements were later copied by Steven Spielberg in his 1984 blockbuster, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
