Item description

THE ADVENTURES OF FRANK MERRIWELL 12 CHAPTER SERIAL 1936 The Adventures of Frank Merriwell (1936) is a Universal movie serial based on the Frank Merriwell books by Gilbert Patten (under the name Burt L. Standish).The serial is set in 1936 instead of the 1890s as in the original stories. Universal combined several stories to make the serial. PLOT: Donald Briggs plays our square jawed, clean living, college athlete hero who somehow gets into all kinds of adventures. In this serial version our hero gets called home when his mother is taken ill. However, it is just a ruse to get him home. In fact, she is being harassed by prowlers and she thinks they're after a ring that her husband left behind before disappearing two years earlier. The ring holds the key to a buried treasure and our intrepid hero with his gang of college chums go searching for it with these mysterious villains on their trail. During the course of the adventure, our hero Frank gets to show off his prowess in rowing, track and field, and boxing. Jean Rogers who played Dale Arden in the Flash Gordon serial is on hand as Frank's chaste girl friend and biggest fan. CAST: Donald Briggs ... Frank Merriwell Jean Rogers ...

ROYAL MAIL do not do tracking for airmail items unless you pay considerably more for insurance for the privilege – as anything posted overseas (eg, to the USA) is not under their control. This is usually prohibitively expensive, but if you would like your item insured please contact me first. Items are usually sent the day after you pay, or perhaps the same day depending on the time difference, and delivery normally takes about two weeks (10 days usually, but sometimes longer). During busy periods (Christmas especially) it can take around three weeks. This applies to postage to USA, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, and to a limited extent, also to Europe. PLEASE NOTE I AM A UK SELLER POSTAGE TAKES LONGER (a couple of weeks, not a couple of days).
