Due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in America, I’m going to take today off and skip this week’s serial history and just let you plunge right in to chapter six of The Crimson Ghost.
I will, however, give you a heads up, and let you know that next week I’ll be writing about one of the most popular characters of the French silent serials, and indeed of all French crime fiction in general, Fantomas. Actually, a large part of my plan for the day is to watch the original five-part serial based on the character which was produced in 1913 and 1914. Each chapter runs roughly an hour, and they are all available for streaming on Netflix, with the first part here.
Anyway, for now let’s move on with chapter 6 of The Crimson Ghost and see how our hero escaped that fiery collision with the airplane, shall we?
Next time: Chapter 7 of The Crimson Ghost: “Electrocution”, and Fantomas. Be here!
