King of the Congo 

1952  - 15 chapters

It was based on the comic book character "Thun'da", created 
by Frank Frazetta. King of the Congo was both the last Tarzan-style 
serial and last serial to star Buster Crabbe.


The film series is a complicated serial with more twists than a maze 
that basically centers around a U.S. Air Force captain and his quest 
for missing microfilm that contains vital information. The heroic Buster 
Crabbe plays Captain Roger Drum, who shoots down an enemy plane 
on its way to Africa with the secret microfilm. Intent on revealing the 
subversive group that the message was for, Drum assumes the pilot's 
identity and flies to Africa himself and crashes in the jungle. He is rescued 
by the pacific Rock People, led by Princess Pha (Gloria Dea), and is 
renamed Thunda, King of the Congo, after he rings a temple gong in 
alarm. With the subversives believing Thunda is their missing pilot and 
under constant attack by another tribe called the Cave Men, our hero 
plots to bring down the subversives who are searching for a new metal 
more radioactive than uranium. At the end, Thunda (or Drum) clear the 
jungle of villains and reunites the Rock People and Cave Men for well.
