Format: DVD
Mascot made such wonderful serials; surreal, dream-like, yet having an almost documentary feel to them, as though you're right there, mixed into the bizarre goings-on. When the mysterious VOICE is unmasked in the final chapter it just can't be that person because he was present several times in the presence of others when the voice would broadcast over shortwave!!! An error in plotting? Nah, it's just Mascot being Mascot and such things are of no matter in the Mascot universe of things.
Harry Carey plays Happy Cardigan, oil rigger trying to bring in a well and battling both The Voice and The Vanishing Legion at the same time while helping Jimmy Williams clear his father Jed Williams of a murder charge. Edward Hearn plays Jed, sexy Garbo-ish Edwina Booth is heroine Caroline Hall, the best child actor of the time Frankie Darro is young Jimmy, former silent Western star William Desmond is the sheriff, and Rex, King of the Wild Horses is, of course Rex. The usual posse rounds out the cast of henchmen and others: Bob Kortman as The Voice's right hand man, Joe Bonomo, Yak Canutt, Dick Dickinson as The Vanishing Legion. Old timer Lafe McKee plays Hornbeck, an attorney and Olive Fuller Golden (Harry Carey's wife) plays Miss Lewis a suspicious nurse.
The Alpha dvd is watchable, dark in spots, soft and fuzzy in others, poor sound in general, quality varying from chapter to chapter. Serial Squadron (you have to go to their web site to order) put out an excellent re-mastered version, the picture image being generally clear and sharp. The audio is also light years better than Alpha's however sprocket noise is unavoidable. My problem with Serial Squadron is that their menu is difficult to access and their discs don't always read. I had to keep trying to get things going.

2. The Queen of the Night Riders
3. The Invisible Enemy

VANISHING LEGION trivia:

We never see the face of the villain in VANISHING LEGION. The character's voice was provided by Boris Karloff, who received no screen credit for the role.

Olive Carey, who appears as the Nurse in Chapters 9-12, was the wife of this serial's star, Harry Carey.

Frankie Darro was the son of circus aerialists. Being 5' 3" meant that Darro was typecast in juvenile roles well into his twenties. He was an accomplished horseman, and also performed his own stunts out of necessity-- there weren't any stuntmen Darro's size to double for him.

Format: VHS Tape
VCI Entertainment and Mascot Pictures present "The Vanishing Legion" (1931) (Dolby digitally remastered), with 12 Chapters of vintage serial episodes jam packed with thrilling action sequences and stunts that will keep you on the edge of your seat...our story asks the question who is the mysterious master criminal known as "The Voice"....are they trying to sabotage the Milesburg Oil Company and put Happy Hardigan (Harry Carey) out of business...is Caroline Hall (Edwina Booth) the rightful heir who has formed her own army to protect her legal rights...what part does Jimmy Williams (Frankie Darro), Rex King of the Wild Horses and Jed Williams (Edward Hearn) play in this murder frame up plot...is Vanishing Legion on the side of the law will they be dispanded before they can take further action in this suspenseful serial.......but don't leave the theater until the final chapter is over and done with "The Hoof of Horror"....just remember double thrills, chills, mystery and suspense...hitting the bull's eye with excitement...don't miss a single spine thrilling episode..return next week to this local theater for another episode of action and adventure that will keep you thrilled until the next chapter.

Under director B. Reeves Eason, producer Nat Levine, Original screenplay by Ford Beebe, Helmer Walton Bergman and Wyndham Gittens, musical score by Lee Zahler...
