The Adventures of Frank Merriwell (1936) is a Universal movie serial based on the Frank Merriwell books by Gilbert Patten (under the name Burt L. Standish).The serial is set in 1936 instead of the 1890s as in the original stories. Universal combined several stories to make the serial.

PLOT:
Donald Briggs plays our clean living, college athlete hero who somehow gets into all kinds of adventures. In this serial version our hero gets called home when his mother is taken ill. However, it is just a ruse to get him home. In fact, she is being harassed by prowlers and she thinks they're after a ring that her husband left behind before disappearing two years earlier. The ring holds the key to a buried treasure and our intrepid hero with his gang of college chums go searching for it with these mysterious villains on their trail. During the course of the adventure, our hero Frank gets to show off his prowess in rowing, track and field, and boxing. Jean Rogers who played Dale Arden in the Flash Gordon serial is on hand as Frank's chaste girl friend and biggest fan.
