THE SERIAL SQUADRON DVD ARCHIVE
The Serial Squadron's mission is to restore and preserve rare serials, which are often last on the lists of larger film archives for preservation, in digital format, so they can be seen again and discovered, enjoyed and studied. The Squadron offers only copies of serials we have worked on and restored ourselves, often from original film prints we acquire. We do not copy any existing DVDs or studio releases and often restore incomplete or damaged prints of serials shot by shot, translating intertitles when necessary, adding musical scores, stabilizing the image, noise-reducing sound and repairing credit sequences.
Many of the serials and related features listed on this page were not even preserved by the studios which made them and have not been made available by the original producers. Donations related to these holdings and projects are used to help pay for new acquisitions to be restored and preserved.

SERIAL SQUADRON DVD ORDERS
Squadron DVD and CD orders are now being processed by TrepStar, an external order fulfillment service which ships DVDs on working days within 24 hours of receipt of an order. DVDs will now have printed surfaces and come shrink-wrapped.
They will send out an email when the order ships with information about how to contact them if there are any questions about the order or a replacement disk is needed.
