| There Was a Lot of Fighting
The Marines, out of their San Diego base, are working on construction of a landing strip for their planes on Halfway Island in the pacific. Their efforts are being sabotaged on the island by a group headed by a masked criminal calling himself the Tiger Shark. Sgt. Schiller invents a gyrocompass which would pinpoint the where on the San Diego-Halfway Island route the planes are being brought down, but is kidnapped by the Tiger Shark's men in order to learn the secrets of the instrument. Cpl. Lawrence and Sgt. McGowan go after to rescue Schiller and stop the sabotage on the island, while trying to avoid the danger set by the Tiger Shark. It seemed like a decent serial on paper, but this serial drags on for long periods, with many time consuming chapter replays. Withers and Morris have great teamwork together which gives these characters personality. Ann Rutherford is absent for long spells, which doesn't give this serial a good heroine. The Tiger Shark is unfortunately an unmenacing villain, who is basically seen only in the last couple of chapters and given an identity easy to figure out (true to the Mascot formula in this regard), since Mascot didn't work much on the red herrings. Plenty of action and fights, but not enough. Rating, based on serials, 4.5
