The Shadow, and the Shadow’s Shadow

From 1855 until 1959, Street and Smith Publications on 79th Avenue in New York City, printed and sold inexpensive novels, detective and science fiction magazines and pulp fiction. In 1930 one of their advertising gimmicks was a radio program called “Detective Story Hour” narrated by a mysterious, somewhat spooky voice called ‘The Shadow.’ No one remembers any of the detective stories, but the deep voice of The Shadow became famous around the nation.

In 1937 The Shadow radio program began, with a hero who was wealthy man about town and amateur detective, Lamont Cranston, the secret identity of The Shadow. On the radio program, The Shadow had the mysterious ability to fog men’s minds with hypnotism so that he could stand in a room and be invisible to all in the room. You can listen to many of these radio programs on the Jimbo Radio web site —».

The popularity of the radio program spawned comic books and movies like this one. Rod La Rocque, who became a worldwide star after his performance in the 1923 silent version of The Ten Commandments, spent most of his career free-lancing, preferring not to become a studio employee. In this independent crime adventure, he is Lamont Cranston, The Shadow, and is a crime newspaper reporter who also hosts an evening radio program that tells stories of crime around the big city.

 Actor Astrid Allwyn, is his assistant Phoebe Lane, the niece of the radio station owner, who has decided that she enjoys chasing crime more than writing stories for the garden and cooking sections of the newspaper. In this adventure, a bungled safe cracking burglary kills the owner of the safe, and The Shadow is convinced that murder was the motive, not burglary.Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
