Short summary

Hanging on by his fingers, the Spirit will fall to his death at the hands of the Mad Mummy. To the rescue, The Shadow is able to cloud the mind of the Mad Mummy. The Shadow fades into invisibility, unwinding the Mad Mummy's bandages, with the Mummy being no more. With the Spirit now safe, The Shadow now returns to the shadows. The Spirit is now free to continue his mission. The Phantom Avenger seeks out help and phones Doctor Frankenstein who is in a nearby castle. The doctor is able to revive his monster and send him on his deadly assignment. Whilst investigating the castle grounds, the Spirit is attacked by the monster, who commences to choke the Spirit to death. Will the monster succeed in killing the Spirit? Will the Spirit's body parts be used by Doctor Frankenstein? Watch the final installment for the answers.

The ultimate coup for this serial was getting actor Glenn Strange ("House of Frankenstein", "House of Dracula" and "Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein") to recreate his role as the Frankenstein Monster for Glut's amateur film. As Glenn Strange had a mustache (at the time he was playing Sam the Bartender in "Gunsmoke" the television series), he wore a rubber mask - the first mask ever produced of the Frankenstein Monster, manufactured by Don Post in 1948.

Famous author Jim Harmon played The Shadow.

CBS-TV make-up man Billy Knaggs (who somewhat resembled Peter Cushing) was Doctor Frankenstein.
