Movie Reviews

Terry, Charlie, Joe, Burma and Dragon Lady
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 02/25/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The comic strip TERRY AND THE PIRATES was brought to life in 1934 by Milt Caniff, who stayed with the syndicated franchise twelve years. "Terry..." continued until 1973 without Caniff (who'd gone on to create STEVE CANYON). "Terry and the Pirates" became a radio show in 1937, running eleven seasons. The TV program aired 18 episodes from June 26, 1953 to November 21, 1953.

BASIC PLOT:
USAAF Col. Terry Lee goes to the Far East in search of an inherited goldmine. While there, Lee hires on as a pilot for Air Cathay, a cargo and passenger transport run by the somewhat dishonest Chopstick Joe. Terry's co-pilot is Hotshot Charlie, and Burma is his blonde girlfriend. Lee's nemesis is the beautiful and mysterious Dragon Lady.

REGULAR CAST MEMBERS:
John Baer - Terry Lee
William Tracy - Hotshot Charlie
Gloria Saunders - Dragon Lady
Jack Reitzen - Chopstick Joe
Sandra Spence - Burma
