Watch Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze - Alternative Versions.
I was fourteen years old when Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze opened in the
theaters back in 1975, and I couldn't have been more excited about it. I
been reading the paperback reprints of Kenneth Robeson's 1930's pulp
stories for years by that point, and was anxious to see the fantastic
visions they had produced in my young head splashed across the big
When my Dad took me to see the movie, I was practically frothing at the
mouth like a mad dog. We bought our tickets, bought our popcorn and took
seats. The lights went dim, and the music of John Phillips Souza filled
theater as the film began. The opening scene was set in a frozen
perhaps the North Pole. Ron Ely, as the title character, appeared at the
peak of a snow dune, riding a snowmobile bearing the "Doc Savage" logo
Ron didn't have the widow's peak that the heavily-muscled guy on the
paperback covers did, but.well, maybe that would look stupid on a real
person anyway. And I came to this conclusion without having seen even one
Jack Nicholson movie. "This is ok so far," I told myself.
Then a Gary Owens-ish voice-over boomed from the screen, announcing:
is Doc Savage: the Man of Bronze." Ron Ely smiled, and his perfectly
perfectly straight teeth glistened with a goofy, animated glint just like
the effeminate pretty-boy Tony Curtis had played in The Great Race.
my young mind could even come to terms with this blasphemous incongruity,
the soundtrack broke into a male chorus right out of a Dudley Do Right
Peace will come to all who find,
Doc Savage! Doc Savage!
He's a friend to all mankind, pure of heart and mind!
Who will make crime,
Doc Savage! Doc Savage!
Conqueror and Pioneer,
Thank the Lord he's here!
Doc made a vow, that helps us all!
Our hero has come!
Let's all join in the big parade!
Go bang your drum, and raise your flag,
'cause history is being made!"
When that song was over, I felt sick. What had they done? Oh my god, my
is going to think I'm a homo for making him take me to
Once the story actually began, however, I was able to breathe a bit
The action of the first few scenes was great. The period look was right.
apelike Monk, natty attorney Ham, and the rest of Doc Savage's
crew had been perfectly brought to life by a superb cast of character
But after that first sequence, involving Doc and his crew chasing after a
mysterious Indian assassin (taken almost verbatim from the original
the whole movie took a huge nosedive into painful TV-quality mediocrity.
Then, about halfway through, I cringed in my theater seat as "Doc Savage:
The Man of Bronze" got even worse. What had been a mere disappointment
quickly devolved into a painfully campy comedy that made the goofy
seem like Eugene O'Neal. At one point, one of Doc's foes, an evil
is shown sleeping in a gigantic rocking baby's crib and sucking his
Since the 1930s pulp adventure "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was such a huge
only five years after "Savage" was released, it's popular to for film
to say that "The Man of Bronze" was simply ahead of its time. Well, for
most part, that's simply bulls***. George Pal and company had a chance to
beat Steven Spielberg to the punch, it's true. Unfortunately, neither Pal
nor Director Michael Anderson had access to the resources (or talent)
the post-Close Encounters of the Third KindSpielberg would enjoy five
later. As a result, Pal and Anderson cranked out a half-assed, mixed up
piece of junk that couldn't decide whether it was trying to be a revival
adventure serials of the 30s, or of the "Batman" TV series of the 60s.
Still, as bad as it is, the film does hold a bizarre kind of fascination
me now as an adult. I always catch it when it's on TV. I've seen it many
more times than I have any of the Indiana Jones movies. When people ask
why I love bad movies so much, I explain the phenomenon this way: you can
only watch a train chug by without incident so many times before you get
bored, no matter how powerful the locomotive pulling it is or how cool
cars look. But how many times could you watch one derail, crash, burn,
explode into a million useless pieces?
