Storyline

Professor Hargrave (James Durkin), a noted scientist, is in Indo-China seeking an ivory-disc that is engraved with the formula for a deadly gas. Dr. Barshan ('John Davidson' (qb)), his assistant Wang (Frank Lackteen) and his henchmen are also after the sacred formula and will stop at nothing to obtain it. Professor Hargrave's daughter, Pauline (Evalyn Knapp), and flight-engineer Robert Ward (Craig Reynolds (I)') do their best to protect Hargraves from the band of villains.

16 August 1998 | by faggotSee all my reviews

Evalyn Knapp gives a pouty performance as she, along with her father and various accomplices, attempts to locate the other half of a disk which contains an important formula, before the evil Dr. Bashan gets his hands on it. Lots of humor and cliff-hanging action. If you liked this serial, try "The Black Coin".
