A 200 page 6x9" Squadron Member "Pocket Pal" Handbook which features an unprecedented list of all US serials, silent and sound, listed in order of their original release dates, now with photos of serials in each year of their release, and not just listed by year but day and month too which will make this the most accurate list of released serials ever, especially in relation to their release order. Directors, principal stars and chapter and studio info along with star ratings for sound serials and information as to what serials exist are all also in the list, and titles have been checked for missing "The’s and other inaccuracies. Serials which exist either complete or of which at least one chapter exists appear in bold type,and apparently completely-lost serials in standard. Also, importantly, distinctions have been made between what titles of the silents were serials with a continuous story and which were "series" with continuing characters featured in self-contained episodes. This will be an invaluable reference for serial fans and cinema historians alike! The Pocket Pal (which may actually become your new best friend) also includes: Other serial lists; by studio, re-release and feature version titles, lists of genres, Mystery Heroes and Mystery Villains, etc., Lists of Republic Home Video serial VHS and laserdisc releases and other video info, room to add addresses and contact information for your Squadron pals, a 2015 Calendar, Ron "Pa Stark" Stephenson's valuable Serial Vital Statistics list, which lists birth and death dates, cause of death and location for dozens of serial stars, background information on special Squadron DVD releases such as The Trail of the Octopus, The Hope Diamond Mystery and The Masked Rider, Serial puzzles and games, and keys to Secret codes which will be necessary to decode secret messages that will appear here and on the website.
