Audience Reviews for King of the Rocket Men


A Republic Films serial from the 1940's, featuring the legendary Ted Adams (who?) and the lovely Mae Clarke (again, who?). Let's face it, King of the Rocket Men was never intended to win an Oscar. It's an old fashioned cliff-hanger meant to keep the kids coming back to the theater for the weekly Saturday matinee. A slice of nostalgia for those old enough to remember the era and a fun little time capsule for the rest of us.
