15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Hans J. Wollstein on January 22, 2000
Format: Library Binding
The introduction to this book gives the most concise and to the point evaluation of Republic Pictures that I have read so far. Author Hayes also explains what happened to the still beloved "Thrill Factory," a company whose style of B-movie making was second to none. The remainder of this handsome volume is a listing of all the company's serials in order of appearance, the good, the bad and the indifferent, each accompanied by McFarland's usual generous dollup of illustrations. But unless you have the serials on video tape, you won't know what exactly they were about. The reader quickly feels like someone who has remained in the movie theater after everyone else has left and the lights are being turned on. The credits just roll on and on, from Executive producer HERBERT I. YATES to Wrangler TRACY LAYNE. But keep this book at the ready while you crank up the olde vcr for the first chapter of JUNGLE GIRL starring the beautiful but doomed Frances Gifford and you will learn who actually donned Miss Gifford's jungle garb to swing through those vines (it was, of course, stunt-woman Helen Thurston).

If you like returning to yesteryear and remembering spending Saturday mornings and afternoons watching your favorite heros do battle with the evil villians, you will love going thru this book. It is a great addition to the video " The Republic Pictures Story". You will be able to find date of your favorite cliffhanger serials releases, how long they actually ran and even if there were sequals. Go visit with your heros like Commander Cody, Zorro, Jungle Girl and the G-men. Have fun returning to the Saturday morning serials from Republic Pictures.

Format: Paperback
This book is a very fine introduction for every newcomer in the genre of serials. That's my case. At this time I saw two jungle serials : the silent "Tarzan the Tiger" with Frank Merrill and the marvelous "Jungle girl" with the tremendous looking Frances Gifford. The book of R.M. Hayes is a complete work of the filmography of serials from Republic Pictures. I will use it for my next purchases of serials ! My only regret is the lack of a brief synopsis of each cliffhanger presented here, without revealing the end of course ! But that's just a very little negative critic. Because I really admire the work of R.M. Hayes. He did a great job. I can only recommend this book.
