While Universal's reason for exiting the serial movie market is often misrepresented as a quality issue, and inability to compete with serials from Republic and Columbia, the decision seems to have had more to do with a change in company ownership, and a desire to focus on higher-end films. That said, their next-to-last serial, "Lost City of the Jungle" has a number of problems, though it is better than might be expected from the circumstances of its production.

Lionel Atwill plays war monger Sir Eric Hazarias, who is after a rare element, "Meteorium-245" that provides a defense against the atomic bomb, which he hopes to sell since it would allow a country to engage in atomic warfare without fear of retaliation. On the trail of Sir Eric is an agent of the United Peace Foundation, Rod Stanton (Russell Hayden) who, with difficulties including 'plane stowaway Marjorie Elmore (Jane Adams) flies across the Himalayas to Zalabar, capital of Pendrang, an isolated jungle province apparently near Hollywood. There an archaeological dig is taking place by Ms. Elmore's father, Dr. Elmore (John Eldredge), whose activities are unwittingly helping Sir Eric who, under the assumed name of Geoffrey London, is financing the expedition because he believes it will uncover the "Meteorium-245" needed for his schemes. Stanton meets up with co-agent Tal Shan (Keye Luke) and confirms Sir Eric's identity. Discovering why Sir Eric is interested in the digs takes a little longer. Adding further complications to both sides is the real power in Zalabar, a woman named Indra (Helen Bennett) who runs things from her casino, protecting those who pay for the service.

The serial was directed by the experienced team of Ray Taylor and Lewis D. Collins.

It seems to me that this old movie serial has to have had an impact on Stephen Spielberg's RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARC. RAIDERS was very much a full blown movie version of a 1930s/40s movie serial and when I first saw is at age 13 I recognized all the inspirations from having adored watching LOST CITY OF THE JUNGLE on PBS on Saturdays when it was shown as part of a series called MATINEE AT THE BIJOU. This is typical of the genre being produced on a budget with bad acting, but the outlandish adventure of it and the cliffhangers at the end of every episode is a lot of fun. A lot of people wouldn't give this four stars because of the cheap production values and bad acting, but when you consider the typical production value and world of this genre, this series is one of the best of its kind.

This one is a 1946 Universal Studios serial. While it was enjoyable to watch it certainly wasn't up to the quality of a Republic Studios serial. What I enjoyed most about it was that its still available and the picture and sound quality is pretty good. Even in 2015 these serials are still important. They not only give us a glimpse of movie making and entertainment from decades past but they are, more importantly, a look at American Culture and morales and ethics, something that is missing in this country 69 years later.

Lost City was close to being Universal's last serial effort. It is not as dull as some of their other serial efforts but it is not very good either. Very noticeable is Universal's penchant for saving money by framing their serial plots around available stock shots. In Lost City the cliffhangers for chapters 2,3 and 4 were lifted from the 1943 Maria Montez-Jon Hall epic White Savage and many more "liftings" are prevelant in other chapters. If you want an exotic serial go with "Drums of Fu Manchu", one of Republic's finest.
