That’s right, Gentle Listeners!
The first season of the weekly Patron Only show, Bill Watches Serials was a pretty good success, so we’re heading back to the serial well, and this time we’re going deep into the jungle, with Universal’s 1946 serial, “Lost City of the Jungle”, starring Russell Hayden, Keye Luke and the man with the monocle, Lionel Atwill, in his last role before his untimely death.
This serial is considered Universal’s penultimate serial, the next to the last one that they would create, and, like most serials, “Lost City of the Jungle” does not disappoint is just a pure joy to watch.
Tomorrow, May 19th, we will start Season Two, with episode one: “Himalaya Horror!”
In Season One, “King of the Rocket Men”, we had atomic powered rocket jet packs and car chases, and gun fights, and such.
In this Season Two, “Lost City of the Jungle”, we have hidden temples, angry natives, car chases, and gun fights, and such!
I think you can see a pattern developing.
These movie serials are just a wonderful way to get your nostalgia groove on, get a bit of that action and adventure that we all secretly crave, and are frankly so superior to pretty much anything Hollywood is throwing at us these days**, so why not pop some popcorn, grab a beverage and some candy, and let’s watch one together!
