"As one of the basic prototypes of what has come to be called Pop Art, the Shadow is unique and irreplaceable, a legend in his own time. A classic character who looms slouch hat and shoulders above all others of his kind, he is an inevitable as a guilty conscience, an unseen power that awakens within all of us our most deep-rooted fears of mortal retribution. There has never been a force quite like him." (Jim Harmon, The Great Radio Heroes)
My favorite actor to play the Shadow has always been Orson Welles. He will always be the best. This radio episode was the first in a long series. Long live the Shadow.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Orson Welles is the narrator. A different version for sure! I never think of Orson Welles and The Shadow as the same but I am learning. A quick listen and worthwhile.
Like all the Dark shadow audio books hearing some of the old commercials and the way the actors present their lines is a bit hokey but fun to listen to.
Orson Welles..My favoriate because he fits the charactor so well.
Great old time radio show. But Audible.com needs to place each Shadow episode in it's correct order when they sell them in a volume. Buy the show's correct date as they aired. There are a lot of people who love old time radio, and for myself, placing each show by the right date is important(Audible.com).
