One of the best serials ever made?

"An earlier review by "Mr. Jim" expresses my same views on RIDERS OF DEATH VALLEY. It is one of the finest serials, certainly the finest Western serial, ever made. Released by Universal, reputedly in sepia tone and costing one million dollars to make, and featuring one of the finest casts to be corraled by any studio at the time, RIDERS OF DEATH VALLEY will offer just about any viewer thrills, chills, and spills...amidst magnificent scenery and great camera work. VCI has obtained an immaculate print, sharp and clean, and the soundtrack is fine. With such familiars as Dick Foran, Buck Jones, Charles Bickford, Leo Carrillo, Noah Beery Jr., Guinn "Big Boy" Williams, Glenn Strange, Roy Barcroft, Monte Blue, Ethan Laidlaw, and a host of other stalwarts ridin' and shootin', well, this is the kind of entertainment that won't let you down. VCI has attractively packaged this release, with all sorts of extras, including cast bios'. The price is right, and this release is highly recommended. Our thanks again to VCI for a superior product at a reasonable price...."

"I must agree in part about "Riders of death Valley".At the moment I have it only on a double vhs.After Christmas..I am going to purchase it on dvd.My only negetive thing about this serial is..it repeats itself over & over.Where it could have been done in 12 chapters..however I'm glad it's 15 chapters.I loved BUCK JONES..he held up the whole serial with the help of the great LEO CARRILLO.And to have it in Sepria print...I CAN'T WAIT!I feel a lot of classic westerns..such as..HIGH NOON..had it been filmed in SEPRIA..it would look more like the real west..the old color like.But all in all from a one to ten..Ten being the best.I give this serial(in sepria) a BIG TEN!! Looks so good I would think."
