1. 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. +

    Enchanted Island (Warner Brothers, 1958)

    Enchanted Island bears only the faintest traces of its source material, the Herman Melville novel, Typee.

    19th century-whalers Abner Dana Andrews and Tom Don Dubbins jump ship and find refuge on a tropical island inhabited by cannibals.

    When Tom disappears, Abner jumps to the logical conclusion and vows not to end up in the pot himself. Returning to his ship, Abner is drawn back to the island by Fayaway (a miscast Jane Powell), the tribal chief’s daughter, with whom he has fallen in love…  more

    Cannibals. I am SO there.
