    For a thread on another forum, serials:




    Yep -- that's the future Lone Ranger!

    Poverty Row studio Monogram Pictures didn’t make serials, but they sure had one of the coolest logos of the early 30's:

    Oh man, I watched that religiously! I think I had the original Aurora kit:

    In fact, to the detriment of my schoolwork, I watched too many of the shows back then. They did tend to get mixed up in my dreams:



    Looks like someone at MeTV must have had the same problem:

    I didn't know there was a kit to go with the series. Actually the unconvincing UFOs don't detract as the series relied on the old fashioned virtues of good writing and good acting.

    He worked on it for over fifty years -- I somehow doubt even a couple more decades would have seen it completed.

    I'm sympathetic -- I'd love to have the full "Fall of Gondolin", or even the rest of "Tal-Elmar". But at least we have HoME now, and the other things Christopher published.

    A favourite film of mine is David Lynch's Dune (1984) fan versions of which are available on Youtube e.g.


    It was panned by many critics as being incomprehensible but for me that is a strong point of the film -and the unusual visuals make it a one of a kind SF movie.

    I have to admit that Francesca Annis is part of the attraction

    There may be a remake in 2019!
