"Excellent action-packed 15 chapter serial from Columbia restored by VCI Entertainment. A sheer joy to watch as Buck Jones stars as the title character White Eagle, a white man raised by Indians since childhood. James Craven is at his back-stabbing dastardly best as Dandy Darnell, out to prevent peace between the settlers and the Indians...for his own greedy purposes of course! This role rivals his gang leader in THE GREEN ARCHER(1940) and like that role, is played to the hilt, pure evil interjected with sly humor and comic exaspiration at the failings of his minions!
And what minions they are!!! A virtual Who's Who among B-Western cronies and henchmen, some of them even playing good-guy roles! I spotted Bud Osborne, Al Ferguson, Eddie Cobb, Roy Barcroft, George Chesebro, Charlie King, John Merton, Jack Ingram, Hank Bell, Kenne Duncan, Black Jack O'Shea and Edward Hearn. They pop in and out and most wind up pushin up daisies by the end!
As with a Columbia serial (especially one directed by James W. Horne) you get lots of running about! Everyone's in a hurry! At times it seems comical with characters running hap-hazardly around and about, through doors, down streets, leaping onto horses!!! But that's what Columbia delivered, Fast-Paced Action! Non-Stop Thrills! And this serial really delivers!
Buck is in fine form as White Eagle, mature yet still very atheletic. Raymond Hatton is side-kick Grizzly and does well boasting, providing laughs and even saving Buck on occasion. Dorothy Fay is the love interest and doesn't get in the way too much.
The print is BEAUTIFUL!!! Sharp, crisp, clear! A joy to watch! Thank you again VCI for doing such an outstanding job!
If you're a serial or Buck Jones fan this is an absolute must for your collection. I'm really glad I made this purchase!"
