RAIDERS OF GHOST CITY is a good western serial....
thank you for info about Alpha's print of THE CLUTCHING HAND..
And for you Weiss Bros. cultists (and I know you're out there) their print of THE BLACK COIN is also pretty dandy. This whets m' appetite for a
sitting of CUSTER'S LAST STAND.

"Mixed bag" is indeed the phrase to use with Alpha Video product. There are some titles they have, one called OFFICER 13 - I think - with a very
young Mickey Rooney featured in the cast - that looks and sounds amazing good for such a rare early '30s film. Then there are some others that are just ...
well, awful. THE APE MAN and the Tod Slaughter version of SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET come to mind, particularly regarding sound quality.
So, some of their source material is just awful and some sources they have access to is very, very good. It's a crap shoot. I mean, I'm eventually
going to have to see LIFE RETURNS. It has the reputation of being a very poor quality film. Should I get the Alpha version or something more expensive? On the
other hand, a cheaper Sam Katzman serial like BATMAN AND ROBIN looks and sounds fantastic from 35mm film and thus raises your feelings on what you've seen!
So, it's a tough call! - Mr. Len

I guess I'll have to pick this title up, eventually!
I have yet to see the VCI version of THE PHANTOM CREEPS, but it's supposed to be quite an improvement to what is generally out there! I may have mentioned
that their version of OVERLAND MAIL is very good, and quite an improvement over their old VHS version in every way! - Mr. Len
