About Serials:
Serial Films were some of the earliest forms of film during the silent era through to the 1950s, often episodic in form (usually with 12-15 parts) and
simplistic in plot, that were shown over a period of weeks or years. The multi-part films consisted of episodes that could be anywhere between fifteen
and twenty minutes in length. The segments were presented one chapter at a time in weekly installments over the course of time. Serials were usually
included during the shorts projected in a neighborhood movie theatre, offered before the feature film, B-western, or Saturday afternoon 'kiddie' matinee.
They were often scheduled along with lots of cartoons, newsreels, other two-reelers, and theatrical trailers/previews.
