1930s superman and international adventurer Doc Savage (Ron Ely) is a paragon of mental, moral, and physical perfection who fights crime from his gadget-filled headquarters inside the Empire State Building.
Bronzed and handsome, he’s the world’s smartest man, he can dodge a bullet, climb up a wall like a human fly, stay underwater for eight minutes, smash through an inch-thick steel door with a single punch, and take on anything up to a hundred armed men at the same time with his bare hands.
He is assisted by “the Amazing Five”: Monk, the world’s greatest chemist (Michael Miller); Ham, the smartest lawyer ever to graduate from Harvard (Darrell Zwerling); Renny, a civil engineer without equal (Bill Lucking); Long Tom, who is unequalled as an electrical engineer (Paul Gleason) and Johnny, the world’s greatest geologist (Eldon Quick).
Together, they head to the tiny and remote South American republic of Hidalgo to investigate the murder of Doc’s father, a saintly missionary who uncovered a scheme to rob a native tribe of its riches.
The maniacal Captain Seas (Paul Wexler) tries to thwart Doc and his team at every turn as they uncover a bottomless lake of gold in the legendary Valley of the Vanished.
In the title role, Ron Ely is physically impressive—he played Tarzan in the 1960s TV series – though his performance style is closer to posing than acting.
Based on the Kenneth Robeson comic strip character.
