    • The Shadow of the Eagle is a 1932 Mascot film serial,
      starring John Wayne in his first serial role.
      This serial is now in the public domain.

      After Duke's dreadful time at Columbia, things changed with this, the first of three serials,
      for producer Nat Levine.
      Duke featured as Craig McCoy, a stunt flier, who does circuit sky-writing..

      During the filming of this, Duke met Yakima Canutt, which would lead
      to film, fight innovations, and a life-long friendship.

      The good guys never seem to catch a break. It added to the plot and my frustration.*
      What a roller coaster of a movie.
      It was a good movie and keeps you on the edge of your seat rooting for the good guys to get one thing to go their way.*
      Common John Wayne where, as the hero, he never gives up hope.

      Didn't realize that it was almost 3 hours till it got close to the end and I looked up at the clock.

      If you like b/w old movies, it's a good show to watch. I like John Wayne but have watched most of his older movies.
      It's a lot of fun to see a young John Wayne running around to save the day.
      If you don't like the older John Wayne movies, give some of is younger stuff a chance.

    • I'll start this off with a warning. You must really be a big John Wayne fan in order to enjoy or appreciate this serial. It clocks in at 218 minutes. The plot's a little silly and every episode (about fifteen to twenty minutes long) has the same plot. Something happens and John Wayne is accused of being the eagle, or he has to run from the cops. And when ever any real proof is turned up, the evidence is discounted because the person it points to just says it's fake. But if you like the westerns that he did for lonestar, then you will probably like this because it is a lot like them (except not a western). I got it as a part of a five disc, three serial set that includes Hurricane Express and the Three Muskateers for twenty dollars (CDN). Total running time of all three is ten hours, so you get bang for your buck.
