'Takes of the Gold Monkey: The Complete Series'


The movie success of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" got television networks thinking in Indiana Jones terms, and this early-1980s ABC adventure was part of that wave. A pre-"7th Heaven" Stephen Collins stars as Jake Cutter, a pilot in the World War II-era South Pacific, whose knack for getting into trouble drives the show.

Jeff MacKay and Caitlin O'Heaney play his frequent partners in peril. Roddy McDowall also is a cast regular. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by cast and crew members; photo, costume and artifact galleries; collector's booklet. *** (Not rated: AS, V)
