| Almost The Phantom
Many serial fans know that 'The Adventures of Captain Africa' was originally to be 'The Adventures of The Phantom'. Stills of this production show up from time to time.

The late John Hart told me (and others) at an Old Time Radio convention in NJ that, contrary to what some film historians say, the entire Phantom serial had finished production before Columbia Studios realized that their option for a second Phantom serial had expired.

Soon, producer Sam Katzman brought Hart and other actors back together to replace every shot in which The Phantom had appeared with new Captain Africa scenes.

The costume assembled for Capt. A was somewhat lackluster; an aviator's cap, mask, turtle-neck, jodhpurs, gun belt and boots.

Hart, an amusing and self-deprecating, man said: "As The Phantom I looked pretty good. As Captain Africa, I looked like an idiot."
