Captain Video [Serial] Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Based on the television series , this 15-chapter serial was pretty much the beginning of the end for that venerable format (the last serial was made five years after this). Although put together by such longtime serial specialists as director Spencer Bennett, producer Sam Katzman and writer Royal Cole, this cheaply filmed anemic entry has Judd Holdren, as Captain Video, flying around in cartoon rocket ships, wearing what appears to be an old football uniform and fighting old robots that aficionados will recognize from serials filmed years before. The plot, such as it is, has Captain Video and his young Video Ranger sidekick battling the evil ruler of the planet Atoma. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi
