The Secret Empire

Show Summary

Marshal Jim Donner, chasing a gang of masked robbers, stumbles upon an underground city of alien invaders, led by the evil Emperor Thorval, who keeps his people in subjugation via a mind-control machine. This obvious homage to Gene Autry's classic movie serial The Phantom Empire was one of the three segments of TV's "Cliffhangers" series, so someone is in deadly peril at the end of each episode. All of the scenes set in the surface world near Cheyenne, Wyoming, are in black and white, whereas those in the underground city of Chimera are in color.
