Richard, Captain. Captain Richard was created by the Argentinian author C.Z. Soprani and appeared in Las Aventuras del Capitán Richard (1933); the novel was filmed as El Hombre Bestia (1934).

Captain Richard is a young, handsome pilot in the American air force whose plane crashes in the Argentinian jungle. Unfortunately, he falls into the clutches of the Evil Surgeon Mad Scientist Dr. Marchesi, who experiments on him and makes him a sex-crazed beast not much above an animal. Eventually the natives pursue Richard, who has been abducting their women, and capture him and kill Marchesi, and Richard is operated on and cured.
