Part Five of ‘The Great Flamarion’ (1945)

Hi there! 🙂 We’re almost done with the currently-running movie series, aka, serial film or movie serial or chapter play.

Those are all terms for a “a motion picture form popular during the first half of the 20th century, consisting of a series of short subjects exhibited in consecutive order at one theater, generally advancing weekly, until the series is completed,” according to Wikipedia.

So, basically, you could say it was an early form of web series. 🙂 How about that?

Anyway, let’s get the show on the road. So to speak. 🙂

PS: According to Wikipedia, “Movie serials were especially popular with children, and for many youths in the first half of the 20th century a typical Saturday matinee at the movies included at least one chapter of a serial, along with animated cartoons, newsreels, and two feature films.”

How about them apples? 🙂
