  5. Undersea Kingdom (Republic Movie Serial; 1950 re-release)

    This Flash Gordon imitation was the second serial from a then newcomer in the field, Republic Pictures. Not to be outdone by Universal’s blond superhero, Undersea Kingdom had Ray “Crash” Corrigan, crash-helmet and all, diving into the ocean in a fantastic super submarine.

    Corrigan and his passengers are headed toward the legendary sunken continent of Atlantis. Upon arrival, the surface people discover that the recent rash of undersea earthquakes are the work of Unga Khan (Monte Blue), the leader of the evil Black Robes (dressed like something out of a Wagnerian nightmare) whose nefarious goal is to destroy America. Republic threw everything but the kitchen sink at the Saturday matinee crowd this time around. +

  10. "Old Ironsides" in Winter Quarters at San Diego

    San Diego has been exceptionally honored
    by the Department of the United States Navy
    because of the selection of this city as the
    temporary ‘home port’ of the famous frigate
    Constitution.

    This living tradition of our country will
    be berthed at the Navy Pier, foot of Broad-
    way, until March 15th and may be visited any
    day between the house of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00
    p.m. including Sundays. No charge for admission.

    The history of the Constitution is replete
    with heroic exploits. Conceived by George
    Washington, the keel was laid in 1794 and ship
    launched in 1797. Participated in 42 battles,
    winning every one of them.

    Reconstructed in part by money freely
    given by American school children the Con-
    stitution is a national shrine. She has been
    visited by 4,512,299 persons. 1,542,423 in California alone.

    This will probably be the last opportunity
    to visit ‘Old Ironsides’ at a Pacific coast
    port, according to her Commander, Louis J.
    Gulliver. See this gallant ship restored exactly as she was in her fighting glory.”

    Old Ironsides" was in San Diego in the winter of 1933.
