The Oregon Trail was the last of four serials that Johnny Mack Brown made for Universal in the 30's before making the switch exclusively to features. Jeff Scott (Johnny Mack Brown), a famous frontier scout, is hired by Washington officials to stop outlaw Indian raids on pioneer wagon trains crossing the rich fur regions of the Oregon Trail. Johnny Mack, the hero dressed all in black, leads the wagon train out west with his faithful sidekick Fuzzy Knight at his side. Together they battle the bad guys working for a big eastern syndicate who don't want the settles to disrupt their lucrative fur-trading activities.
Bonus Features: Chapter Selection, Classic Serial Trailers, Bios, Digitally Remastered.
