Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941)
On a scientific expedition to Siam young Billy Batson is given the ability to change himself into the super-powered Captain Marvel by the wizard Shazam, who tells him his powers will last only as long as the Golden Scorpion idol is threatened.

Viva Cisco Kid (1940) as Moses
The Cisco Kid (Cesar Romero) tells his pal Gordito (Chris-Pin Martin) that "From now on, Amigo, I am through with women" and then a few minutes later, after rescuing Joan Allen (Jean Rogers) from an attempted stage holdup, tells her "...but you, senorita, you are different!" and therein lies the short summary of all of the films in the 20th Century-Fox Cisco Kid series. The padded plot, so exhibitors could tell the entries apart, finds Towash, Texas saloon owner Hank Gunther (Harold Goodwin) plotting with Jesse Allen (Minor Watson), Joan's father, to rob the money missed on the aborted stage holdup from the express company safe rather than report empty-handed to the "Boss"(Stanley Fields). Allen robs the express office, but is seen by Moses (Nigel de Brulier), an old hermit, who tells the boys in the saloon that he doesn't know the robber's name but recognized him as the man he had seen that day with Joan. The latter has convinced her father to return the money and they will go to Arizona. Cisco, also seen that day with Joan, gets blamed for the robbery as Gunther has killed ol' Mose who is no longer around to identify Cisco as not being the robber, and Joan is not willing to implicate her father. It is beginning to look like Cisco is indeed through with women, albeit on an involuntary basis.
