Republic Pictures, [circa mid-1960s].
Unbound. Single episode film serial. Glossy illustrated box with reel of 8mm film with Republic mailer laid in. Fine. A silent black and white film reel of the Republic Pictures series *Captain Marvel*, the production company's first comic book adaptation. The series starred Frank Coghlan, Jr. as Billy Batson, the young boy of noble heart chosen to be gifted by the gods to fight crime as Captain Marvel as portrayed by Tom Tyler. The series did not rely on the comic book for content rather it creased a new story pitting Captain Marvel against the criminal mastermind the Scorpion. Today the series is considered one of the high-water marks of motion picture film serial.
