Eventually Arnold learns who is behind these dastardly deeds and retrieves the robot, but unfortunately its critical metalogen disc is missing - without it, the robot will not work. The disc contains a very rare, mysterious metal only obtained from meteorites.
Beneath all of the various story lines, fist fights, and cliffhangers, the fundamental driver for these actions is the need to find additional supplies of metalogen in order to manufacture these robots . . . either for good . . . or for evil. . . .
Cliffhanger escapes: mundane. In all cases, Mr. Morgan escapes by luck. The most unusual of the dangers he'll face is a machine throwing out arcs of electricity - Morgan is pushed into a pit beneath the machine, which then erupts in a spray of sparks. How does he survive? I am not telling. . . .
Extras: "Other Cheezy Flicks" (film trailers) and "Intermission Time" (clips from drive-in theater intermissions).
DVD - 2010. Picture: good, but worn. The black & white picture has low contrast, occasional flecking, and several vertical light and dark scratches in Chapter 3. There is obvious cropping on the right side (most noticeable when it shows newspaper headlines) but otherwise not a problem. Sound volume normal, clear. Subtitles: none.
FYI, I bought this from Cheezy Distribution via Amazon along with several other titles because they offered the best price, and they refunded me more than 90% of the system-generated per-title shipping costs, only charging me what it actually cost to ship the DVDs. For the volume of titles I bought, purchasing them at a lower price from Cheezy and paying only five bucks to ship the lot was a far better deal than buying the DVDs at a higher list price from Amazon to get the free-shipping-over-$35 deal.
