"Undersea Kingdom," a forgotten, yet most influential serials of all time

Lon Chaney Junior portrayed Captain Hakur, a second in command henchman who torments Ray "Crash" Corrigan, Smiley Burnett and other assorted visitors of the Undersea Kingdom. George Lucas owes a debt of gratitude to this serial, for making weirdness so common place. Saturday Night Live's "Ambiguously Gay Duo" seems modeled after Crash Corrigan and his 12 year old protegee.

Today's preconceptions could destroy the innocence of pre World War II America, so it is best to watch this with a elementary school student.
