Description by OLDIES.com:

Jerry Sheehan, along with Sir James Blake and his niece Joan, has invented a "death ray" that can be used to threaten aggressive nations with annihilation if they refuse to convert to the path of non-violence. Sir James trusts that his machine can end war and he plans to make a gift of the technology to the League of Nations. But before world peace can be achieved, the claw-handed criminal mastermind known as "The Scorpion" sends his gang of conspirators to steal the deadly device. Composited from a fifteen chapter serial, the feature film version of Blake of Scotland Yard is an engrossing thriller with an inventive plot and plenty of action-packed violence.

Character actor Ralph Byrd is best remembered for portraying comic-strip cop Dick Tracy in seven films in the 1930s and 1940s, as well as an early 1950s TV series. Co-star Joan Barclay got her film career off to a flying start at the tender age of 12, appearing in the 1927 silent classic, The Gaucho, with Douglas Fairbanks, and followed it up with a long career in B-movies and serials.

Product Description:

Former Scotland Yard Inspector James Blake has spent a huge amount of his retirement fund to finance a death ray that was invented by his friends Jerry Sheehan and Hope Mason. Following a presentation of the new machine to the public, Count Basil Zegellhoff tries a number of times to steal the machine with the help of a criminal called The Scorpion. Once they succeed in the theft they realize that an important part of the ray is missing so the two heartless outlaws embark on a reign of terror in order to gain the missing part. Now it is up to James Blake to stop them in their tracks.

Includes 15 chapters.
