Saturday Morning Serial

Fiendish enemy plotters vs. Uncle Sam's heroes. During WWII Saturday morning matinees served up serials pitting Axis spies against our own good guys. This trailer was for 1942's Secret Code, a 15-part serial that featured a masked crusader known as the Black Commando. Action was key, but each Secret Code episode featured a segment showing kids how to encrypt a message. With the Web things are easier now. The new educational site from the National World War II Museum will code and send your own top secret messages to anyone you chose.
