Kids who grew up in the 1930s, 40s or early 50s will remember Saturday matinees. First there were the previews, then a cartoon followed by a newsreel . But before the feature film , there was typically a chapter from a "serial"

Return with Jim Willard to those Saturday afternoons to learn about the Hollywood serials, the studios and the stars. View trailers of some of those films and a chapter or so from two of the best, "The Daughter of Don Q" and "The Perils of Nyoka"

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
