The 1934 Universal serial has Pauline played by Evelyn Knapp as the daughter of a prominent scientist (James Durkin). When daddy heads to Indochina to search for the formula to a deadly gas, Pauline dutifully tags along. So does villain John Davidson and his battalion of henchmen. Pauline is rescued from certain doom at every turn by hero Robert Allen and by unfunny comic relief Sonny Ray. The 12-episode makes excellent use of standing sets from such previous Universal efforts as The Old Dark House and The Mummy.
1934, 234 minutes, B&W
