Citations presented in this first book-length bibliography ever compiled on the motion picture serial span serial film history, beginning with Edison's serial What Happened to Mary (1912) and concluding with Hollywood's final episode saga, Blazing the Overland Trail (1956). Among the many other serials covered: King of the Kongo, Perils of Pauline, Exploits of Elaine, Dick Tracy, Captain Marvel, Flash Gordon, The Lone Ranger, Green Hornet, and Tailspin Tommy. Since the serial has proved inspirational to present-day film-makers, as shown by Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Indiana Jones sequels, Schutz covers this topic as well. The book is designed as a master index with many cross references.
