Louise Currie, "the Katharine Hepburn of Gower Gulch," died September 8. She was 100! Most fans remember Louise from her Monogram and PRC films with, among others, Bela Lugosi; serial fans, however, treasure her appearances in two classic Republic cliffhangers,  ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL (1941) and THE MASKED MARVEL (1943). She was a spirited heroine in both. 


Louise and her four leading men, one of whom is the eponymous hero, THE MASKED MARVEL. But which one? Clockwise: David Bacon, Rod Bacon (no relation), Richard Clarke and Bill Healy.
