THE PURPLE MONSTER STRIKES is an interesting serial because even though it was made in 1945 it has many of the key elements of 1950s sci-fi films: Alien invasion, alien possession, and paranoia.

Also, Roy Barcroft had the Republic costuming department sew a hidden pouch in his Martian costume to stash his cigarettes!
