| Great action scenes and good story are sunk by a non actor in the lead
Secret Agent Mala is sent to Clipper Island to investigate the goings on on Clipper Island where some unknown group is trying to prevent a dirigible transport company from setting up a refueling station.

One of the first Republic serials is an odd mix of the new Republic studio and the old Mascot, hence the animal co-stars) is a footnote in serial history as the only 14 chapter sound serial. To be honest this would be a really great serial except that Republic's decision to have non actor Mala as the lead pretty much sinks the show. Its not so much that he's bad, rather he clearly is in over his head speaking stiltedly and acting stiffly. The casting of Mala is the difference between an okay serial and a very good one. If you can forgive a poor lead this is worth a shot.
