4.0 out of 5 stars The early days of superheroes.....start here!
To many people, the superheroes such as Batman and Superman were the start of the genre, but here is one of the true originals. I suspect that this film was originally shown in British cinemas as the "Saturday Serial". Yes it creaks, and its not politically correct, and the African Tribesmen look remarkably familiar - but this was made in 1943, as sheer escapist...

To many people, the superheroes such as Batman and Superman were the start of the genre, but here is one of the true originals. I suspect that this film was originally shown in British cinemas as the "Saturday Serial". Yes it creaks, and its not politically correct, and the African Tribesmen look remarkably familiar - but this was made in 1943, as sheer escapist enjoyment, using characters familiar from newspaper comic strips and comic-books. Its far truer to the "history" than the remake of some years ago. Don't believe me? Simple - order them BOTH, then when they arrive settle down with a cup of tea, coffee or C-C - and some crisps or popcorn - and enjoy the films. Who needs the real world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will THE PHANTOM survive the Pit of Doom? Don't miss ......., 3 Sept. 2004

This review is from: Phantom [DVD] [1943] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I have looked forward to the day that I would see this gem, and I wasn't disappointed. I admired Tom tyler as 'Captain Marvel' and even as 'The Mummy',but he is an actor who was born to play The Phantom. What a presence! And what a pity he only essayed the role the once. Kenneth MacDonald (hey, doc can you give me something for this aaaarrrgh) is a prime villain.(hisss) Dr Zarkov has gone grey, and is now a loveable old professor! The heroine screams and faints on cue. And finally 3 cheers for Devil (wonder dog) who saves more than the day on a number of occassions. A winner all the way.

This kept me on the edge of my settee, what a good serial and Tom plays a really good Phantom. It's a pity he did not make any more like this but we still have the Adventures of Captain Marvel. John Mc from England
