who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow does!
I have "The Shadow" radio series starring Orson Welles, so I was interested to see Lamont Cranston on film. This was my first one, and I have to say, I enjoyed it. I really liked Kane Richmond, who resembles the actor Donnelly Rhodes - very handsome with a nice quality. George Chandler plays his major domo Shrevvie, and Barbara Read is Margo - a much different characterization from the radio show. Read was married to William Talman of "Perry Mason" and committed suicide when she was 45.
This plot concerns murder and mayhem over the disappearance of a jade statue.
Unfortunately we didn't get to see much of "The Shadow." He appears very briefly only a few times.
