In the Fabulous Thirties, Doc Savage and his five Amazing Adventurers are sucked into the mystery of Doc’s father disappearing in the wilds of South America. The maniacal Captain Seas tries to thwart them at every turn as they travel to the country of Hidalgo to investigate Doc’s father’s death and uncover a vast horde of Incan gold.

Outragously entertaining period piece set in the 30s, it is a spin on the classic cliffhanger series, as much as “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, only done on a low budget and much campier by director Michael Anderson. The opening scenes laces liberal amount of gothic art nuveau, predating Batman by two decades. Starring Ron Ely (Tarzan) as a perfectly cast hero and the gorgeous Pamela Hensley as the local latina Mona tagging on to our hero on a goldhunt in the non-existent latin american country of Hidalgo. Best line, our hero to Mona, holding a fist to her chin just as you expect him to be tender with her and give her a hug: “Mona, you’re a brick!”

Paul Wexler’s ham-and-cheese blackhat, Captain Seas is a an absolute delight. Expect a little “Raiders..”, a dash of “Batman”, a little “The Lost World”, a little “Lost Horizons” and a whole lot of campiness and you’ll get it just right. Watch out for cult favorite Michael Berryman in a small part as undertaker and enjoy the campy use of John Philip Sousa’s patriotic music.
