Haven't you seen Manhunt Of Mystery Island (1945)? Reedited by Republic as Captain Mephisto and the Transformation Machine, Manhunt of Mystery Island, its original title, is a 15-chapter serial from Republic filled with great action, and Barcroft is a joy to watch.
Watch this and then see these other four films.
Sheriff Of Wichita (1949) Barcroft heads an outlaw gang in this Rocky Lane Western.
In Old Amarillo (1951) Barcroft has a major supporting role in this Roy Rogers oater.
Radar Men From The Moon (1952) This may be the serial that introduced Commando Cody, but everybody's too busy watching Barcroft as Retik, ruler of the Moon, as he plans to invade Earth.
The Purple Monster Strikes (1945) Again Barcroft steals the show from the star as "The Purple Monster", a Martian who can take on any identity. A classic serial from Republic.
