ORIGINAL THEATRICAL TRAILER (1941, 53)














"THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL" WAS THE FIRST LIVE ACTION MOVIE TO PORTRAY A COMIC BOOK CHARACTER ON THE BIG SCREEN. ALL TWELVE CHAPTERS OF THIS SERIAL CLASSIC ARE PRESENTED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON MYBOOMERPLACE.


MOVIE REVIEW:


Without a doubt, Adventures of Captain Marvel has to be one of the best superhero serials that showcases the most superheroics. The amazing special effects for the time, especially the flying scenes, could not be topped until, perhaps, Superman: The Movie in 1978 dazzled all audience members. That’s a good 37 years before anyone ever did it better. The Superman serials that came out in 1948, starring Kirk Alyn and Noel Neill, used crude animated sequences to portray Superman flying.



Ironically, Republic Pictures originally wanted to make a Superman serial, but the brass at DC Comics (known as National Periodical Publications at the time) said “no thanks”. Big mistake. The offer went to Fawcett Comics and they didn’t refuse. Part of the reason Captain Marvel became popular was due to this serial.

THE MUMMY'S HAND (1940) TRAILER










THE PHANTOM SERIAL (1943) CLIP!








A RARE 1928 PIC OF TOM USING HAND WEIGHTS. HE WAS A PROFESSIONAL WEIGHTLIFTER WHO OFTEN COMPETED IN TOURNAMENTS. HE'S ACTUALLY PICKING UP THE BAD GUYS IN THE CAPTAIN MARVEL SERIAL. NO WIRES!!!
















Born Vincent Markowski in New York in 1903, western screen hero Tom Tyler worked as a factory laborer, coal miner, and a lumberjack before rising to fame in silent films. Details of his early life are sketchy, at best. By the early 1920s, Tyler made his way to Hollywood. Tall, muscular, and handsome, Tom Tyler quickly found work as an film extra and stuntman.



In the 1920s, Tyler worked at various studios, including Pathe, MGM, and Film Booking Offices of America (FBO). In 1925, the financially burdened FBO was purchased by Kennedy-family patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy. When Tyler secured a contract with the newly solvent FBO studio that same year, his name was changed to Tom Tyler. FBO primarily made low-budget westerns, often distributed solely in the south and midwest, and the studio paid its actors meager salaries. Tyler's first film for the studio was Let's Go Gallagher, released in August 1925. Between 1925 and 1929, Tyler made nearly 30 films at FBO. However, in 1929 FBO was absorbed into a conglomerate which became RKO Studios. After leaving RKO, Tyler made films for nearly every poverty row studio, including Mascot, Victory, and Reliable. He met actress Jeanne Martel on the set of Reliable's Santa Fe Bound in 1936, and the couple married the following year. After making two more films together, Orphan of the Pecos (1937) and Lost Ranch (1937), Tyler and Martel soon parted company.



By the late 1930s, many poverty row studios had either folded or were bought up by larger companies. Rolling with the punches, Tom Tyler moved on to such studios as Universal, Republic, and Columbia, taking on a larger variety of roles. Branching out from westerns, Tyler took roles in horror films and in serials portraying the comic book heroes Captain Marvel and The Phantom.



Republic's popular Three Mesquiteers series eventually saw the production of 51 features. Tyler, who portrayed Stony Brooke, was on board for the final 13 films; however, he also appeared in earlier Three Mesquiteers films, such as Powdersmoke Range (1935) and The Night Riders (1939). There were numerous cast changes during the run of the series. By the time Tyler took over the role of Stony Brooke, Bob Steele portrayed Tucson Smith, and Rufe Davis was in the role of Lullaby Joslin. When Davis left the series in 1942, he was replaced by Jimmy Dodd. Avid TV viewers will remember Davis as "Floyd Smoot" in the CBS TV series Petticoat Junction from 1963 to 1970. As for Jimmy Dodd, from 1955 to 1959 he hosted The Mickey Mouse Club.



Although Tom Tyler acted in at least 200 films during his 30-year career, he never earned much money. In the years following the end of World War II, Tyler's career suffered greatly due to his terrible bout with rheumatoid arthritis. Although he worked in films with some regularity, often the roles were little more than bit parts; Tyler's mobility was limited, and his facial features became distorted from the disease. By 1953, with his health declining rapidly, yet he took a part in Ed Wood's 25-minute TV pilot Crossroads Avenger; in his scenes, he's clearly in great pain. After one more small role in the 1953 western Cow Country, Tyler, now crippled, headed east to Michigan to live with family members. Sadly, he passed away in May 1954 of a heart ailment at the age of 50.

Teething Toy



Well now, you've probably heard it rumored that here in Deadwood we
have such a tough neighborhood that our babies teeth on guns. And the
fact of the matter is, this is the very truth. I happen to know
the lady who was responsible for the start of this rumor. Nice woman,
married with a baby. One afternoon, she saw a drifter approaching her
house. She knew he would bother her something fierce for food and take
advantage of her. So she took out her husband's gun. To her dismay, she
found that it weren't loaded. Jest then, that drifter walked right in
the door without knocking or nothing. So the woman dropped the empty gun
into the crib and tried to fend him off. The drifter was all set
to take every bite of food the little lady had prepared for her
husband's dinner, and give her a hard time to boot. But he happened to
glance into the crib, and saw the woman's little feller jest gumming
away at the handle of the gun. Well that drifter turned pale and
high-tailed it out of there. Left Deadwood as far behind as he could. He
didn't cotton to the idea of stayin' in a place where the babies teeth
on guns.

Old Man Moses




It's not hard to catch a meal in New Hampshire, no sir. Take my
neighbor, Old Man Moses, who lives down a piece from me. One morning,
Old Man Moses went out his kitchen door and found twelve turkeys on his
fence. He figured one of them would make a good dinner, but he was
afeared that if he went to get his gun, them turkeys would be gone when
he returned.

So Old Man Moses tossed his ax at them turkeys,
hoping to get at least one. But his ax caught the tree branch above the
turkeys on the fence. The branch fell into the pond, taking the turkeys
with it and trapping their legs right good. Old Man Moses went right
into the pond after them turkeys, his great coat floating around him
like a fishing net. By the time he came ashore, Old Man Moses had
snagged himself twelve turkeys and a passel of fish for his supper.
Ain't nowhere else I know of where you can catch a weeks worth of meals
in under ten minutes 'cept in New Hampshire. Just ask Old Man Moses.
