Today we have an edited down version of the 1939 Buck Rogers serial starring every kid's hero through the fifties, Buster Crabbe! This version has added stock footage and new dialogue at the beginning, to put a more modern spin on it... Two other familiar faces with small parts are Roy Barcroft and Kenne Duncan.
Charles Previn was the uncredited music supervisor, Charles' cousin's son is André Previn! He also had an unbelievale 370 music department credits!!!! The two last projects he worked on were THE WORLD OF ABBOTT AND COSTELLO and PURPLE DEATH FROM OUTER SPACE.
