Customer Reviews

The title throw you off of because it is not about Robinson Crusoe.
John Blankenship
The production values were about what you would expect for a low budget 1936 chapterplay.
Thomas M. Prater
He makes Sammy Baugh ("King of the Texas Rangers") look like Laurence Olivier.
S. D. Lothrop

This latest Hal Roach Studios restoration of the classic Republic Serials is NOT regionally encoded as it states in the Amazon notes. This and ALL releases in this Hal Roach Studios series are "Region Zero" and are playable anywhere in the world. And the quality is stunning--almost as good as their releases of original Laurel and Hardy material or their other Serials (ZORRO'S FIGHTING LEGION, RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON, ZORRO RIDES AGAIN, ZORRO'S BLACK WHIP, etc.)

I took a chance after reading reviews of others which were pretty much all negative and bought this serial anyway. It is goofy, corny, off the hook silly. Get it, it's ...totally worth it....

VCI Entertainment and Republic Pictures present..."Robinson Crusoe of Clipper Island" (1936) (Dolby digitally remastered), a 14 Chapter cliffhanger from an action packed Republic serial featuring an outstanding cast with Mack V.

Format: DVD
REPUBLIC PICTURES was created in 1935 by the merger of five smaller studios. REPUBLIC produced a total of 66 serials, which were known for quality and for being better than any other outfit's cliffhangers.

THE STORY of ROBINSON CRUSOE OF CLIPPER ISLAND (1936):
A U.S. Intelligence Dept. agent goes to a small Pacific island to investigate the sabotage and destruction of an airline dirigible.

CAST:
Mala - Agent Ray Mala
Rex - Rex, the Wonder Horse
Buck the Dog - Buck
Mamo Clark - Princess Melani
Herbert Rawlinson - Grant Jackson
William Newell - Hank McGlaurie
Tiny Roebuck - Eppa the Wrestler

CHAPTERS:
1. The Mysterious Island
2. Flaming Danger
3. Fathoms Below
4. Into the Enemy's Camp
5. Danger in the Air
6. The God of the Volcano
7. Trail's End
8. The Jaws of the Beast
9. The Cave of the Winds
10. Wings of Fury
11. Agents of Disaster
12. The Sea Trap
13. Mutiny
14. Thunder Mountain

CRUSOE trivia:

Of the many hundreds of sound serials produced, this is the only one that's 14 episodes in length. It's also the first-ever serial to feature re-cap chapters, which consist of film clips from previous episodes.

The story involves a dirigible that exploded. Ironically, six months after CRUSOE was released, the lighter-than-air ship Hindenburg would do exactly that: explode and crash while docking at Lakehurst, N.J.

Was one of George Lucas's inspirations for STAR WARS.

Was edited down into a TV movie in 1966.

Professional wrestler Theodore 'Tiny' Roebuck was a Cherokee Indian. He appeared in only three movies besides CRUSOE. Here Tiny portrayed (what else?) a wrestler.
