Music, madness, death, and darkness face amateur criminologist Lamont Cranston and The Shadow. In the midst of the most classic of mystery motifs - from foreboding castles to frame ups - he unravels each remarkable riddle. From elusive treasure to conclusive evidence: How? Why? And, who dunnit?
Let your curiosity lead you through two newly discovered Orson Welles episodes, available here for the first time since their original broadcasts in 1938 - "He Died at Twelve" and "The Black Buddha." Consider the clues in more classic episodes starring Bill Johnstone and Bret Morrison as the cloaked crusader. Ask yourself, is that really Ken Roberts singing in "Tenor With a Broken Voice"?
The Shadow producer and scriptwriter Edith Meiser once said, "A mystery is just a puzzle solved by the detective." Of course, the 18 cases in this digitally restored and remastered collection are cracked by…The Shadow! Includes Program Guide by William Nadel with photographs and background information about the series.

I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
Once again another collection of the old Shadow serials. The stories and characters aren't the greates, but OrsonWelles is so good as the Shadow, who really cares? These are a great look back at a different time and place. I used to own most of these on casette at one time and it is nice to have them in a digital format. If you love the Shadow you will love this one for certain.
The shadow is one of the best radio shows ever made. Orson Welles,Bill Johnstone, and Bret Morison all do great jobs as the Shadow. Agnes Moorhead of Bewitched plays the Shadows partner during Welles time as the Shadow. Classic radio at its best.
