Editorial Reviews

In this WWII epic, Lionel Atwill and Turhan Bey play Japanese spies who infiltrate the United States and set about to sabotage America's defense effort. The Junior G-Men, a group of young pilots played by the Dead End Kids and Little Tough Guys take only 12 chapters to defeat this road-company Mikado and win the war from the back lot at Universal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comic antics along with the serial thrills!! March 19, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Okay, this version of the conflict between G men and the Black Dragon society might not have the great chapter endings or the raven or the super weapons in "G Men Versus the Black Dragon", but I couldn't help liking it anyway. You have thwe antics of the East Side Leo Gorcey, but the rest are all there. You have Lionel Atwill as the Japanese villain with a rather german accent. You have the secret entrance to the hideout in a haystack. You have shots where the shadows cast by the staircase resemble the rising sun symbol associated with the Japanese during the second world war. You have allusions to history in touches like the Japanese merchant (a cover, of course, for the Black Dragon Society) closing their doors on December 7, 1941. I guess I can't call this one of the great serials, but what the heck, I really enjoyed it and recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dead end kids still going strong. December 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very old video, and it was trans recorded from a VHS tape so you cannot expect excellent video quality. The video was viewable and the audio was fair. The delivery was very fast and the price was right.

VCI Entertainment and Universal Pictures present "JUNIOR G-MEN OF THE AIR" (1942) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Serials, more specifically known as Movie serials or Film serials, were short subjects originally shown in theaters in conjunction with a feature film --- Known as "chapter plays," they were extended motion pictures broken into a number of segments called "chapters" or "episodes." --- Each chapter (a typical serial usually had as many as 15 of them) would be screened at the same theater for one week --- The serial would end with a cliffhanger, as the hero and heroine would find themselves in the latest perilous situation from which there could be no escape --- The audience would have to return the next week (and pay admission) to find out how the hero and heroine would escape and battle the villain once again --- Serials were especially popular with children, and for many youths in the first half of the 20th century, a typical Saturday at the movies included a chapter of at least one serial, along with animated cartoons, newsreels, and two feature films.

The Movie studios of Universal, Columbia and Republic, with Republic quickly becoming the acknowledged leader in quality serial product --- Each company turned out four to five serials per year, of 12 to 15 episodes each, a pace which they all kept up until the end of World War II when, in 1946, Universal dropped its serial unit along with its B-picture unit and renamed its production department Universal-International Pictures -- (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Dead End Kids and Little Tough Guys in "JUNIOR G-MEN OF THE AIR" (1942) (231 mins/B&W) --- A Universal Chapter Play -- Under Lewis D. Collins (Director), Ray Taylor (Director), William Sickner (Cinematographer), Saul A.
