Description by OLDIES.com:
"The All-American crusade against crime!
With the city in the grip of the worst crime wave in history, the outnumbered and outgunned police must rely instead on cleverness and bravery to defeat "The League of Murdered Men." These underworld villains have declared open war on thegovernment, killing and burning anything that stands in their way. A tip from beautiful reporter Vicki Logan puts detective Bill Bannister on the track of gang leader Professor Mortis. Calling himself "the Voice of Death," Mortis has found a way to bring dead criminals back to life to fill the ranks of his ruthless army. As fires rage and buildings crumble, Bannister and his assistant Tim Nolan fight their way through countless obstacles and brutal criminals in order to bring the crimelord to justice and restore order to the city.
Gang Busters profited from Universal's high budgets and state-of-the-art studios, which allowed veteran serial director Ray Taylor to fill the story with thrilling car chases, plane crashes and rampant destruction. Robert Armstrong brings the same reckless energy to the role of Nolan that made him so memorable as Carl Denham in King Kong.
Streetwise G-men go on a mission to confront a massive crime-spree that invades the city. This collection presents chapters one through thirteen of the classic film serial.
