hoooo boy

I have added to my, so far meager, collection of old movie serials. This time the very first Batman serial.

I have it on in the background on my work computer ... it's bad ... really bad ... as old movies serials are. There was a cut version a decade or so ago that had some of the wildly offensive racial stereotypes cut out (it was made during WWII), this one is apparently complete. And yeah, just met the villain ... not QUITE politically correct.

So, are there any other fans of old movie serials out there? What is your favorite?

I love the original Flash Gordon, as should be clear from my icon, and the original Buck Rogers.

I need to add to my collection just a little
