5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood revisited 16 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
One of my treasured childhood memories is of going to the Saturday afternoon matinee. There we saw our heroes and villains fight endless battles. The Adventures of Captain Marvel is a great example of the serials we watched. This thrill a minute serial, wonderfully reproduced on DVD is a must for anyone who harks back to those carefree days when Saturday afternoons consisted of a cartoon, a western and a serial. I had not seen these images for over 50 years, but the quality and content of this DVD make it a worthy purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars shazam ! 5 Sep 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
in 1970 myself & a friend went to the abc cinema in bath,somerset.
we sang "we are the minors of the abc !" there was a cartoon & western,but
what made us go back week after week was "captain marvel" even then it was quite dated but watching it now once again,for 1941 the serial is
fantastic!
a geeky young man called billy batson says "shazam "& becomes captain marvel !a caped crusader (with half a cape!) but he only possesses this power to rid the world of the evil
scorpion ! we were glued to it then as i am now ,tom tyler is great & those
flying effects still look good now ! what sets this super hero out from the
rest is captain marvel is not merely billy batson dressed up ,he appears
by magic in a puff of smoke! shazam !

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool 40s serial 12 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
I'm too young to have see before but having seen several of the 40s serials on DVD- def rate this as one of the top three that I've seen- it's also a mystery serial cos you don't know who the Scorpion is until the last chapter- the flying scenes of Capt Marvel are also fantastic for a serial that was made so long ago when all they had was strings to make it look as though someone could fly!
