Buck Rogers is a Universal serial film based on the Buck Rogers comic strip. It starred Buster Crabbe (who had previously starred in two Flash Gordon serials) as the heroic Buck Rogers, Constance Moore as relatively seldom-seen romantic interest Wilma Deering, Jackie Moran as sidekick George “Buddy” Wade, and Anthony Warde as “super-racketeer” “Killer” Kane. In 1953, the 1939 movie serial was edited into this film.
