Is Dr. Vulcan a traitor? Who is killing the ducks of Science Associates? And why have they taxed poor Bill Given? To learn more, put on your fedora, three piece suit, shop-class metal helmet, Magic Nipple Buttons © and let loose the Blue Flame!
These first three episodes of Republic Pictures' 1949 serial involve plenty of impotent punches, explosions, plucky female reporters, stiff dialogue and stock footage in just under an hour. Besides, anything that involves a low-rent Rocketeer doll chasing a giant feminine product is always worth a look.
This iRiff is designed to sync with BOTH the DVD version (found on Amazon.com) and the streaming version found on Netflix.com. Join the Film Nuts! (Erik, Sharla, Alex and the manic-depressive chimp Chi-Chi) for some retro laffs!
Running Time: Approx. 50 minutes
