Description by OLDIES.com:
Railroad detective Ken Williams (Ken Maynard) investigate with help from the railroad's arch rival Jane Corwin. Jane, the heiress of The Corwin Transportation Company, may be a secret agent of The Rattler or an even more diabolical threat playing both sides against the middle.
The Rattler's poison darts target anyone who comes too close to his futuristic cave hideaway.
Created by the minds behind, The Phantom Empire (1935) just prior to that landmark serial, Mystery Mountain was the runaway sensation of The Secret Cinema's 2004 Moonlit Movie Series sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania. With an uncanny collection of life-like masks that allows him to impersonate nearly anyone, The Rattler makes a cunning villain that has film buffs and scholars alike hissing his foul deeds while championing the reemergence of this neglected treasure.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 128 ratings.
an excellant B Western Serial for the old western fans.
Great price and the video is very good.
One of the first serials I saw as kid. This one holds up well. The first two chapters are as exciting as any serial. Not sure if these were the two that Maynard himself directed. If so, too bad he was forced to relinquish the job. The serial, however, maintains interest throughout. The cliffhangers are inventive, the Rattler is a great mystery villian, and the red herrings abound. Ken Maynard still has his youthful appearance and seems to be enjoying himself. I deduct 1/2 star for over reliance on Syd Saylor's "comedy" antics, mostly in the middle chapters ( Chapter 6 is, perhaps the worst.)
