Storyline

Lamont Cranston, a psychiatrist on retainer to the police department, is asked to assist in the Case of the Cotton Kimono murder investigation. Lamont and his girlfriend Margot Lane are not satisfied with Detective Harris' analysis and call on the two prime suspects: the victim's voice instructor and her boyfriend. When Harris, convinced that the boyfriend is guilty, frames the young man for the crime, Lamont is forced to assume his secret identity as "The Shadow", and cloaked by his power of invisibility, seeks to force the true killer to reveal himself.

pilot episode of the proposed but never created The Shadow TV series
7 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i enjoyed this 25 minute pilot TV episode for the proposed The Shadow TV series that never materialized.it's well paced,well written.unfortunately they never made the series this pilot episode was based on.however,judging by this episode the TV series might have been pretty good.Tom Helmore plays Lamont Cranston/The Shadow,and does a pretty good job,though for a few minutes,his accent kinda distracted me.but once you get past that,everything else works pretty good.Paula Raymond plays Margot Lane and is good in her portrayal.they packed quite a bit into the short 25 minute running time,and i wish they had continued on with the series,as it would have been interesting to see where it went from there.oh,well.anyway,for me,The Case of the Cotton Kimono is a 7/10
