and ? as THE CRIMSON GHOST
(Voice by I. Stanford Jolley)
Professor Chambers demonstrates his new invention, the cyclotrode, to his associates, and soon after is pursued by agents of a caped fiend called the Crimson Ghost, a disguised and demented University professor wearing a skull mask and hooded crimson cape.
The Cyclotrode is capable of disrupting all sorts of electronic signals and said to even be able to assume control of a nuclear missile, and with it the Crimson Ghost desires to assume total power.
Criminologist Duncan Richards tries to avoid the masked villains' mind‑control collars, which bend victims to his will, and uncover his true identity.
The Crimson Ghost was the final serial directed by William Witney for Republic. It's simple, efficient and fast-moving, with a solid cast of performers including fan-favorite Linda Stirling and Clayton Moore, on hiatus from the Lone Ranger TV show, who as Ash is an effectively dangerous right-hand henchman to the caped fiend who dominates the story.

Includes all 12 episodes in excellent condition transferred from a near-mint condition original print with a clear and very stable picture; almost no damage, dust or splices and the theatrical trailer. about 3 hours.
