Not sure if this would be of interest to anyone here (And apologies if the
post is not appropriate.) but I wrote an article regarding The Shadow motion
A pretty good review. I was like you in reverse. I was a big fan of the pulp
version of the Shadow, although I had a nodding acquaintance with the radio
show. I loved certain parts of the movie while hating others. In particular, I
hated this version of the Margo Lane character. Ditzy blonde wasn't in the radio
show or the pulp, and the stupid psychic powers angle was worse than the power
to "cloud men's minds". I also resented the humour that was injected. Don't get
me wrong, I love humour when used at the right moment, but when the two
adversaries start discussing neck ties I lost it.
After seeing most of the other film versions of the Shadow, I'd have to say this
was one of the best, but like Joe Pfeiffer said, there were other, better
options available that they didn't pursue.
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men? The Shadow do!
