This feature was not only composed by editing together the first four chapters of the same-titled serial, but in fact the episodes were specifically written so that, spliced together, the result had the pacing and dialog of a b-feature film. Producer Sol Lesser developed this approach so that this film could be marketed either as a free-standing feature, as a feature-length first episode, with no loss of continuity or resolution in either case. Or the source serial could be booked in the traditional 12-episode format.
