Brass Bancroft of the Secret Service DVD Review

Now available on DVD at:

Synopsis: In his third year as a Warner Bros. contract player, U.S. President Ronald Reagan did time as a federal employee 40 years before becoming U.S. President. In 4 fast-paced B-movies, he was Lt. “Brass” Bancroft, a stalwart Secret Service agent who risked life and limb to bring to justice illegal alien smugglers, counterfeiters and enemy spies. Apprehend the 2-disc Brass Bancroft of the Secret Service Mysteries Collection in the name of the law – and of vintage Hollywood fun

Review: The American public and the news media have always made it a point to refer to the late President Ronald Reagan's past as an actor, but how many have actually seen his work?  What kind of an actor was he?  What project(s) was he famous for?  I dare say that most cannot answer these questions.  Fortunately, the Warner Archive has come bearing answers with the Brass Bancroft series on manufacture-on-demand DVD.

This great new DVD set includes the following classic "B" action films:

-Code of the Secret Service
-Secret Service of the Air
-Smashing the Money Ring
-Murder in the Air

These secret agent films from the 1930s and 40s are a part of the Brass Brancroft series, said to be based on the works of W.H. Moran, ex-Chief of the Secret Service.  These types of films were mass produced.  These are kinda fun, because they are featuring the same recurring character.  The scripts and acting are pretty campy.  This DVD is a great piece for any fan of vintage film, especially B action film.

Interest Range: Vintage Film
