Editorial Reviews

"The Adventures of Doc Savage" offers the definitive version of the radio series that most Doc Savage and pulp fiction fans consider the finest audio adaptation of the legendary Man of Bronze and his Fabulous Five. First heard over National Public Radio and produced by Roger Rittner's Variety Arts Radio Theatre, this eight-hour collection presents two complete classic Doc Savage stories, fully dramatized and based on the original novels by Lester Dent, writing as Kenneth Robeson. These timeless tales of adventure were adapted for audio by Rittner and well-known pulp historian and author Will Murray. Produced in full range stereo, each episode includes impressive sound effects and a full musical score. This collection - the first commercial release of this impressive thirteen-episode series - features two exciting multi-part adventures. First is the seven-part "Fear Cay", an action-packed adventure in which Doc, Monk, Renny, Ham, Long Tom, Johnny, and cousin Pat Savage pursue the Fountain of Youth Gang to a remote Caribbean island full of booby traps and intrigue - including a mysterious force that can turn a man into a skeleton in a matter of seconds! Then, Doc and his team are enmeshed in the atmospheric six-part lost-city thriller, "The Thousand-Headed Man", where they seek a lost expedition in the jungles of Indochina and an ancient treasure guarded by the fantastic Thousand Headed Man. This collection has been completely remixed, remastered from the original recordings, and is presented in enhanced digital stereo. Also included is a brand new documentary, "The Sound of Bronze: Making 'The Adventures of Doc Savage'", featuring interviews, anecdotes from the cast and crew, and never before revealed details of how the series was conceived and created. The set, released in cooperation with Conde Nast Publications, also features cover art by Doc Savage Bantam artist Bob Larkin.

Imagine if somebody had produced a Doc Savage radio serial back in the '30's or '40's. Then imagine if the surviving copies were clean, clear, and had stereo capability. These are just plain FUN, produced in the manner of old radio serials but with all the modern amenities available to current technology - at least, 1980s technology, which was pretty darn good.
This series captures the style of serials produced when the Doc Savage adventures were written, and the actor selection was terrific. Renny sounds like Renny, Monk sounds the way Dent described him, Pat sounds like Pat. Some of the "evil vilian" accents are fairly cheesy (sorry), but then, that would likely be true if they were produced in the 30s, so at least it's authentic cheesiness.
One extra CD includes production commentary, which I really enjoyed. Another has examples of other radio productions, also great fun.
I only wish the movie developers had approached their project with the same intent and respect as these radio producers. Are you listening, Hollywood?

This show is teriffic. The cast and crew did an excellent job creating Doc Savage for radio. It really is too bad there weren't more episodes made. If you are a Doc fan, this is a must have. If you've never even heard of Doc, I still recommend this show. It only took a couple episodes to turn my kids into Doc fans. Being a fan of DVD extras, I also really enjoyed the "Sound of Bronze" documentary. The whole package is excellent and well worth the price.
