Hakotep´s flying pyramid has been grounded, but Ezren, Valeros, Merisiel and Harsk must enter the ancient tomb to deactivate the fleet of smaller flying pyramids poised to attack cities across Osirion. Deep inside the Pyramid of the Sky Pharaoh, an untouched tomb from the heights of Ancient Osirion, the heroes face undying guardians woken from ageless sleep, culminating in a final battle with the reborn Sky Pharaoh Hakotep himself. Unless they are able to defeat Hakotep and reunite the pieces of his sundered soul to send it into the Great Beyond, Osirion will enter a new age under the rule of a mummified pharaoh from the distant past.

The Planet Man, a campy and low-budget graduate of the Space Patrol school of juvenile entertainment, serves up plenty of breezy, not-to-be-taken-seriously adventure fun. It is the golly-gee-whillikers saga of Dantro, intergalactic troubleshooter for an organization known as the League of Planets. The League sends Dantro out into the celestial world to maintain law and order. Assisted by members of Earth´s first rocket expedition, Dantro pursues evildoers like Marston, the ruler of Mars, who possesses an insatiable appetite for interplanetary domination, and a pair of dese-dem-and-dose space pirates named Slick and Blackie, who sound like refugees from a B-gangster movie. This collection offers the second half of the series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Tonken, Joseph Boland, full cast.

The Lux Radio Theatre was one of the longest running - and most extravagant - shows from radio´s golden age. The show featured the greatest stars in Hollywood appearing in hour-long radio adaptations of their biggest motion pictures. Cecil B. DeMille was the host for the lavish production of what was to become a veritable checklist of many of Hollywood´s best films from the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s. The stars of a movie usually appeared as their audio counterparts, although sometimes contracts or schedules meant that other actors took the parts. The productions were live, with full orchestras, and many Hollywood legends were not used to performing in public without the benefit of retakes. The greatest film legends appeared on The Lux Radio Theatre, including Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, James Stewart, and Loretta Young, to name a few. Sponsored by Lever Brothers, the makers of Lux Soap, The Lux Radio Theatre came to radio in 1934 and lasted until 1955 for a total of 926 hour-long broadcasts. It transitioned to television in 30-minute weekly installments in 1950, with James Mason as host. Episodes include: ´´The Virginian´´, starring Gary Cooper and Charles Bickford; ´´A Farewell to Arms´´, starring Clark Gable and Adolphe Menjou; ´´The 39 Steps´´, starring Robert Montgomery and Ida Lupino; ´´Young Tom Edison´´, starring Mickey Rooney and Beulah Bondi; ´´O.S.S.´´, starring Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake; ´´Sampson and Delilah´´, starring Victor Mature and Hedy Lamarr. 1.
