| Amazing what they did in 1938, real cliff hangers
Action packed and each chapter leads to you really want to know what the heck is going to happen and how can this possible be solved. I hope this one gets re-done some day so that it could be in color along with a better picture quality. But the script was so good, your imagination fills in more than you wished for or dared.
