Newly Mastered in HD from a 4K scan! Considered by most to be one of the best, if not the best serials of all time. Three circus stuntmen track down a ruthless madman known as 39-0-13 (Charles Middleton, Emperor Ming of Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe), bent on destroying the wealth and integrity of his former employer, multi-millionaire Horace Granville (Miles Mander, Murder, My Sweet). 39-0-13 kidnaps and imprisons Granville, impersonating him in order to facilitate his deeds of destruction. Cy Feur’s (Dick Tracy vs. Crime Inc.) pulse-pounding score sharply accentuates the crisp direction of William Witney (Sunset in the West) and John English (Adventures of Captain Marvel). Chapter One’s cliffhanger – an underground tunnel flooded by a massive mountain of torrential water – is a classic! Starring serial star Charles Quigley (The Crimson Ghost), Bruce Bennett (Dark Passage) and the beautiful Carole Landis (I Wake Up Screaming).

Critical Acclaim

"If you've never experienced the innocent thrills of the best sound-era movie serials, Daredevils of the Red Circle is an excellent place to start. Enormous fun for the whole family, and a DVD Talk Collector Series title."
