Jack Armstrong (1947) is a Columbia film serial, based on the radio adventure series Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy.


Vic Hardy, a scientist working for Jim Fairfield's aviation company, is kidnapped by Jason Grood's gang after discovering radiation emitting from their secret island base. Grood intends to conquer the world and forces Hardy to assist him.
