ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL (1941)

£10.00

THE GREATEST SERIAL OF ALL TIME

 

UK, VHS, PAL, B & W, 12 Episodes, Running time: 187 mins approx.

 

Considered by many to be the finest serial ever made, THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL chronicles the exploits of "The World's Mightiest Mortal" as he combats The Scorpion, a hooded villian intent on obtaining six optical lenses that, when aligned properly, turn ordinary stones into gold! Highlighting the serial were the fabulous flying sequences by Republic's ace special effects team, Howard and Theodore Lydecker. Combining a wired dummy photographed against real backgrounds in natural sunlight with spectacular take-off leaps and landings supplied by action ace David Sharpe, the final effects are still as fascinating today as they were in 1941. THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL marked the very first time a comic book super hero's exploits were transferred to the silver screen and the resulting 12 chapters have yet to be equalled for excitement and entertainment.
