You can tell by the way I use my walk

An unusual trailer for movie serial THE MYSTERIOUS DR SATAN. Unusual in the way it’s narrated by Dr Satan’s unnamed robot, by way of a series of superimposed titles. There should be movies that actually do this. I don’t just mean titles to explain a character’s thoughts, but specifically the thoughts of robots. Because otherwise it can be hard to know what they’re thinking.

I like his walk! Looks like he’s constantly on the verge of falling on his big tin face. The outtakes for this one must have been both painful and hilarious.

Dr Satan himself is played by the great Eduardo Cianelli. Nobody seems to know who plays the robot. Theories are welcome, the more harebrained the better.
