Don't miss KING OF THE MOUNTIES (which was originally to have featured Spy Smasher),
one of the most action-packed and well-directed and edited serials ever.
The Squadron edition includes fully re-created sound effects and music
for reels for which audio has thus far been unavailable.
✦✦✦✦ (Republic, 12 Chapters)
Allan Lane, Anthony Warde D: William Witney
Sergeant King of the Mounties faces three high-level agents, one from each of the Axis powers, who harass the Canadian population with bombing raids by a vertical-takeoff plane that takes off from their volcano headquarters and seems to come from nowhere.
This would have been the second serial to feature Spy Smasher but was rewritten to include Sgt. King of the RCMP. It is extremely well-produced and full of constant exciting action.
It has been given a new cover, converted to DL-DVD and upgraded to include the previously missing Chapter 3 takeout and also a preview (Chapter 1) of the upcoming SPY SMASHER DVD.
A print of this serial with full audio has not yet been available so all missing music and sound effects have been replaced in this edition and subtitles added for missing dialogue.

GUNFIGHTERS OF THE NORTHWEST
DL-DVD; 15 Episodes
Rare late US sound serial featuring Jock "Tarzan" Mahoney, Clayton "Lone Ranger" Moore and Phyllis "Lois Lane" Coates all together, shot hastily all outdoors, with lots of action as a couple of Mounties go after a "White Horse" raider gang trying to take control of Indian territory in Canada. The good news is this (donated, not new) transfer is not from a VHS tape but the not so good news is it is not high resolution so will only look ok on a small TV screen, and shows some occasional digital artifacting. The transfer may have been prepared for TV broadcast. So this is not a typical sharp, new Squadron digital transfer; contrast is fine, audio is restored, the print is almost entirely clear of splices or damage. It has everything but sharp focus :( But this version looks better than any others currently floating around so people have asked that it be offered "as is," so here you go. This edition will be available for a limited time.
