Saturday Serials: “The Doom of the Rising Sun” (Batman 1943, Chapter 15)

"The Doom of the Rising Sun" (Batman 1943, Chapter 15)

This is it! This is the final thrilling chapter in the 1943 Columbia Pictures Batman serial film. At last, all of our perseverance and dedication will be paid off, for surely Batman and Robin will triumph over the evil Japanese would-be saboteur Dr. Daka and his sinister henchmen. Right?

Yes, of course. Don’t be silly. But first the Caped Crusader must escape imprisonment in his wooden coffin. Looks like it’ll be up to the Boy Wonder to save the day! But not before Batman can spew a little period racism…

I like how Batman immediately tries to un-zombify Linda Page, without first testing the device on someone less, uh, necessary.

Anyway, stay tuned to this column for another exciting vintage serial! As soon as  I figure out which one to do next…
