|"This is The Voice. Tonight we strike at one who knows too much."|
Who is "The Voice?" A ghostly presence commands the mysterious group of riders known as the Vanishing Legion to do his bidding, or face death as traitors. How does he broadcast his voice over miniature radios? Where is his hideout?
Who is "The Voice?" Why does he want Jimmy Williams' father pursued on a murder charge--and never to have him reach prison alive?
Who is "The Voice?" Could he be one of the investors otherwise trusted by oil man Happy Cardigan?
The Vanishing Legion is one of the earliest existing sound serials and the Serial Squadron is proud to present its digital restoration as a new DVD release.
Like many other early talkies it often has a realistic period-but-not-dated feel, and an unpredictable story, with a very young Frankie Darro's outstanding, often emotional performance as the son of a wanted man a true highlight.
Harry Carey is a strong lead in this story, and gets good support from a cast of ex-silent serial stars such as The Riddle Rider's William Desmond, Perils of the Wild's Joe Bonomo, and the uniquely talented Western stunt man Yakima Canutt, who's actually called by his own name in this serial.
Boris Karloff, who had worked for Mascot in several previous serials, including The King of the Kongo, provides the voice of the mystery villain here, originally without onscreen credit. He doesn't appear onscreen though, so we're not giving anything away by telling you this. You'll still have to figure out the identity of the mysterious Voice on your own.
This DVD includes all 12 chapters of the serial, toned cool and warm black and white for outdoor and night scenes, restored picture and fully restored and hiss-free sound. Don't miss this historical gem that no serial collector should be without!
