    A lost 1956 movie is Sheena, Queen of the Jungle starring Irish McCalla. It was never shown in the United States probably because the producers did not want to pay the actors. It was shown in foreign markets. It was the first official Sheena movie and is quite fun. Mike, I have a copy if you’d like to review it.

    Remember Firesign Theatre’s J-Men Forever, that recycles a lot of old serial footage?

    They took a fight scene from the Captain Marvel serial with Cap fighting the goons in a garage Cap knocks one goon into a corner – then picks up an engine and throws it after him.

    Overdubbed Voice: Ya sadistic bastard! You crushed my skull!.

      I absolutely LOVE J-Men Forever. Outside of the framing sequence and one or two inserts, the entire “story” is composed of footage from hero serials. I think the movie is hilarious, although some don’t particularly care for weed humor (J-Men, get it?). I highly recommend it to all who can find it.

        I don’t mind weed humour, as such, but it DOES get a tad heavy-handed.

        At one time i practically had it memorized because we’d visit friends up in Tennessee on holidays when they had a big party, and Karl Wagner insisted on seeing it at least three times over a weekend…
