Description by OLDIES.com:
The nefarious General Burr is in cahoots with the land-hungry Russian Count Raspinoff, who seeks to claim Northern California for his empire. Their bloodthirsty rampage claims many lives. When Don Loring's father and brother are killed, he puts on a black cape and mask and, vowing revenge, is reborn as "The Eagle." By day, Loring poses as a kindly church organist, but by night he challenges unscrupulous gangs of killers. The Eagle fights his way through dozens of deadly desperados until he reaches a final confrontation with the men who murdered his family.
Featuring top-notch stunt work by the innovative, death-defying Yakima Canutt, Vigilantes Are Coming is one of Republic's most exhilarating, action-packed serials. This 12-episode adventure stars Bob Livingston of "The Three Mesquiteers" fame and was co-directed by serial legends Ray Taylor and Mack Wright.
Here's breathtaking serial action as a mysterious masked rider known as "The Eagle" fights a despotic dictator in early California to prevent that territory from becoming a Russian possession. Contains 12 episodes.
