There was a serial in 1952 called Radar Men from the Moon in which the main character is "Commando Cody" hmmm.... Cody was played by George Wallace. I haven't gotten around to sitting down and watching them all. But the character of Cody has to be the inspiration for "The Rocketeer" and I wouldn't be surprised if it was the inspiration for a certain clone commander in episode III. The story of the serial is that there is a race of beings on the moon and because of the moons thin atmosphere (1952 remember) they are dying and must take over earth to survive. The beings start taking out American military installaions and industrial centers, so Cody and his crew have to go clean house.

check it out - http://www.amazon.com/Radar-Men-Moon-Fred-Brannon/dp/B00009Q4WN/sr=8-1/qid=1158802202/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-0612116-0585637?ie=UTF8&s=dvd

I know these serials are popular, and have a following, but to be honest, I have never seen them. I watched some old Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon serials from the 30's and 40's, and to be honest, those were hard for me to get into. Funny thing is, Lucas lifted the title scroll for Star Wars, straigh from these serials.

I think I have Radar Men from the Moon [movie compilation] on DVD somewhere. Is that pathetic?
