Radar Secret Service is a 1950 action film starring John Howard, produced by Barney A. Sarecky and directed by Sam Newfield. The film was featured on the American television show Mystery Science Theater 3000.


Set in post-World War Two, stolen Uranium-238 goods are tracked by the US Government, using new radar technology; the girlfriend of a gang member is also recruited as an informant. Though the radar tracking device helps, in the end it still takes an undercover girl to get back the looted shipment from the criminal masterminds.


Mystery Science Theater 3000[edit]

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation of the movie was paired with the railroad crossing safety short film, Last Clear Chance. The movie was introduced by the Mads as containing "Hypno-Helio Static Stasis (containing X-4)", which amounted to tedious scenes with marginal plot development at best. The program was identified as a continuation of the "Deep Hurting" concept, drawing from the rock-climbing scenes of Lost Continent and the sandstorm scenes of Hercules Against the Moon Men.
