I thought "Zeppelin vs. Pterodactyls" was just an idea that was floated by Hammer Films in 1971 and never developed. It turns out Hammer was just reviving this forgotten Republic Pictures serial from 1936.

Watch for tiny parts by Bela Lugosi, Noah Beery, John Wayne, Ralph Byrd, John King, the Wilhelm Scream and Terence Stamp.

Why does that kid exclaim "Mammy" as if that's the 1936 equivalent of "sweet"?
