Lots of fun to see this 1939 12 episode movie theater serial (each episode appeared consecutive weeks with the major billed film; interesting marketing strategy). I watched 6 episodes on two consecutive nights.

It's a bit whack in it's guess at the future 5 centuries down the line (Earth ruled by outlaw armies of organized crime), but it's primarily 'entertainment', and hardly sci-fi. The way they depict the space ships flying and landing, etc. is sooo goofy - yet fun.

Casting Philson Ahn as Saturnian Prince Tallen was, um, a bit strange...
