Doc Savage – The Man of Bronze

  • Film

Time Out says

George Pal's last effort is a gargantuanly awful visualisation of the first in Kenneth Robeson's popular '30s pulp series, with Ron Ely (TV's Tarzan) as the superhuman leader of 'The Amazing Five' world experts as they track down the murderer of his father in South America. The special effects are pretty grim (unusual for a Pal production), but Anderson's direction is even grimmer, adopting the now obligatory (in the wake of Batman and Flash Gordon) camp attitude towards its pre-war fantasy subject. It's almost as though America is taunting itself for ever having taken its superheroes seriously.
