Abstract:

(DVD 4806 and DVD 4807) The master mystery: Quentin Locke infiltrates a corrupt patents company, only to run into the gleaming terror of its robot protector, the Automaton. In order to save the beautiful Eva Brent and find a cure for the dreaded Madagascar Madness, Locke suffers an inhuman array of tortures and physical restraints. He is chained, tied with barbared wire, padlocked in a crate and thrown in the water, tied beneath a descending elevator, strapped to an electric chair, and bound in an elaborate Oriental torture chamber.

(DVD 4807) Terror Island: A swashbuckling inventor steers his high-tech submarine to a forbidden tropical isle to rescue the father of the woman he loves.

(DVD 4807) The man from beyond: Howard Hillary is a man frozen in the Arctic. He returns to civilization 100 years later to reclaim the love of his live, reincarnated in the body of a young woman.

(DVD 4808) Haldane of the Secret Service: Heath Haldane is an undercover operative assigned to infiltrate a band of counterfeiters within the dark alleys of New York's Chinatown.

(DVD 4808) The grim game: Cameras captured an unplanned incident: two planes colliding in mid-air. The footage was so spectacular that the script was revised to integrate it into the plot.
