Who Knows What Evil Lurks in The Minds of Men?
Only The Shadow Knows! Superman first appeared in 1938 and Batman first appeared in 1939 . . . almost a decade earlier, on July 31, 1930 The Shadow appeared on a radio detective show. Lamont Cranston, alias The Shadow, is a wealthy 'man about town' who helps the helpless and takes vengeance on the evil doers with mystical ancient powers of the mind. His mentor is a mystic with great powers who has taught him how to hypnotize people and read minds, and even project his thoughts on others. His greatest feat is to become invisible to others. He silently hypnotizes everyone in the room to believe that they cannot see him . . . they can only see his shadow. With a haunting laugh and voice he makes quick work of the bad guys, and earns the admiration of all the pretty young girls.
In this classic adventure from 1958 The Shadow travels to New Orleans to investigate the disappearance of an old friend and while searching for answers he becomes involved in gangsters running a popular jazz joint on Bourbon Street and the overthrow of a South American country with a deposed President. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
