Review by

Chapter ten of S.O.S. Coast Guard once again features good miniature work by the Lydecker brothers, Howard and Theodore. The segment also contains one of the idiosyncrasies of the serial genre: the return of a long-dead henchman. No, Roy Barcroft's reappearance despite having been killed in an earlier chapter is no supernatural touch but a measure of economy, the studio gambling that the serial's core audience, children, would have long forgotten his earlier participation.
