  1. I was just watching this and thinking. Betty’s dress is truly ugly. It’s cut wrong and it doesn’t fit. I know the wardrobe department on this show must have been on a budget, but wow. We are all very fortunate they hadn’t invented polyester yet.

  2. Kevin…….Saw this serial new in 1941. I was seven years old and was thrilled. First time I had seen someone “fly”. As for the clothes, this was the style in 1941.

  3. Even by 1941 standards Betty’s dress is ugly. 🙂
