Burn 'Em up Barnes

Show Summary

Burn 'Em Up Barnes is a 12-part serial about bus line owner, Marjorie Barnes (Lola Lane), who has to battle a group of greedy oil men from taking her property. The serial is a remake of a 1921 movie of the same name. Marjorie inherits what is thought to be a worthless piece of land, however it's actually worth several millions of dollars. The property sits on top of several major oil deposits, and the oil men will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. Marjorie enters a partnership with race-car driver Burn 'Em Up Barnes (Jack Mulhall), who protects her property from being seized. Barnes is forced to thwart several attempts from lead oil man John Drummond (Jason Robards Sr.), who attempts to wreck Marjorie's property so she will sell out. Overall, the serial is a lot of fast-paced good fun. There are a lot of great driving and car chase sequences filmed in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles.
