The Crimson Ghost---attired in black hood and cloak, skull mask and surgical gloves---skulks to an abandoned mansion and informs his henchmen, Louis Ashe (Clayton Moore) and Bain (Rex Lease),of his plans to seize the Cyclotrode, a device invented by Dr. Chambers (Kenne Duncan), that is designed to detect-and-repel atomic bomb attacks.

Ripsnorting fight scenes, a villain in costume, a device designed for good being used for evil and a two-fisted professor who is going to save the day, by golly! If you're looking for a Bergman film, you and your pince-nez are in the wrong place, Charlie! This is pulp of the cinema! I fell in love with serials when I got to see them at the matinees at the base theater when our family was stationed in Japan. That old love was resuscitated years later when the local PBS station in San Antonio started running them as "Midnight Smacks". If you're looking for old-fashioned fun and don't spend all your time looking for plot holes, watch it! Buy it! Also check out (the original) CAPTAIN MARVEL and DAREDEVILS OF THE RED CIRCLE. And don't take any wooden cyclotrodes!
