Columbia's 9th serial, slotted between "Overland With Kit Carson" and "Terry and the Pirates", was intended to have Lorna Gray in the role played by Veda Ann Borg, and to have been co-directed by D. Ross Lederman and Norman Deming. The credits specified the serial was "Based upon stories published in "The Shadow Magazine", while the ads proclaimed it to be "right out of the air waves and magazine stories." What appeared was a mixture of both with Lamont Cranston the true identity of The Shadow, although Lamont Cranston was only an occasional disguise of the pulp magazine Shadow. The hypnotic invisibility of the radio character was completely ignored, as was the almost invisible "Living Shadow" of the pulps.(In the serial, the only invisible man (The Black Tiger) was the villain, as even James Horne probably realized that six to ten henchmen taking orders from an invisible man was more plausible then six to ten henchman falling all over the place from unseen blows delivered by an ...

To a nine year old, this was the greatest serial ever!
The thing I remember most was the deep, resonant voice of Victor Jory, who played The Shadow and Lamont Cranston. "What evil lurks in the hearts of men, the Shadow knows..." He kept me and my friends spellbound. We went to the theater every Saturday, never missing a single episode of that wonderful potboiler serial. We didn't care what the feature was, we were there to see The Shadow! All for dime! What memories... Ah, those really were the days!
