Franz Joseph Spiegler

Franz Joseph Spiegler was a German Baroque painter. He is best known for his frescoes, which decorate many of the churches and monasteries along the Upper Swabian Baroque Route; the frescoes in the Zwiefalten Abbey are considered his masterpiece. Spiegler was born the Free Imperial City of the son of a district court attorney. After the death of his father in 1692, his mother married the painter Adam Joseph Dollmann, a member of an old patrician family in Wangen; this was Spiegler's introduction to the arts. Around 1710 Spiegler began training as a painter in Munich under the tutelage of his great-uncle, the Bavarian court painter Johann Kaspar Sing. During the course of his studies, Spiegler became acquainted with the historical painting in vogue with the Dutch painters of the time. From 1723 to 1725 Spiegler painted frescoes in the Ottobeuren Abbey that show the strong influence of the Italian painter Jacopo Amigoni, he created frescoes and oil paintings for numerous monasteries and castles in the regions of Upper Swabia, Lake Constance, the Black Forest, the Upper Rhine.

In 1757 Spiegler died in Konstanz.

A foreign power, represented by their agent Marlof, attempts to set up secret missile bases in Canada to target the United States for their planned summer invasion. Meanwhile, acting on intelligence following the smashing of a spy ring in Montreal, Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers Don Roberts and Kay Conway go undercover in a settling party headed for the Yukon. Marlof has agents and Reed, in the party en route to the site of the planned missile bases, their attempts to disrupt the party only call the attention of the Mounties to the larger plot who, once the settlers reach their goal, continue to pursue the troublemakers, uncover their plot against the free world, unmask Marlof and bring them to justice.

Those were the only two Republic serials released in 1953, although the studio did re-release Adventures of Captain Marvel and Captain America to pad out their release schedule, not to mention the serial Commando Cody: Sky Marshal of the Universe, intended to be a television series. Though filmed in the United States, early chapters in Canadian Mounties vs. Atomic Invaders are set in a snowy region of northern Canada referred to as Taniak and rely on the use of footage from earlier Republic productions including the 1938 feature Call of the Yukon and serials King of the Royal Mounted and King of the Mounties; these are blended with rear projection scenes featuring the serial's cast on studio sets and a "snow-dressed" Republic backlot. Chapters set in snow-free forest were filmed in the Big Bear Lake region of California's San Bernardino National Forest, it was filmed between 24 March and 13 April 1953. The serial's production number was 1936. George DeNormand Fred Graham Carey Loftin Dale Van Sickel Joe Yrigoyen Special Effects by the Lydecker brothers Canadian Mounties vs.
