Jack Holt as a serial hero
In 1941, Jack Holt was strictly a contract actor at Columbia where ten years previous, he had been one of their leading stars. I have it on good authority that Jack made the serial to fulfill his contract commitment to Columbia. He and Harry Cohn bumped heads constantly and I think this was one way Cohn was getting back at him. Holt had made some serials in the silent period, where his tight lipped histrionics probably made more sense. I have seen the serial and where it may not have been up to Columbia's standards, you got to admit old Jack went through an awful lot of fights, being dunked in the water, and general scuffling just to have his suit looking nice like that. He fared a little better in some of the westerns he did in the late Forties at Republic and in Arizona Ranger, in which he co-starred with son Tim.
