Based on the 1930's pulp fiction and radio drama series, this movie pits the hero against his arch enemy, Shiwan Khan, who plans to take over the world by holding a city ransom using an atomic bomb. Using his powers of invisibility and "The power to cloud men's minds", the Shadow comes blazing to the city's rescue with explosive results.Written by

The scene in which The Shadow rescues Dr. Roy Tam on the bridge is taken, though slightly altered, from the opening of The Living Shadow, the first Shadow novel, in which The Shadow saves a man from suicide on the Brooklyn Bridge. This scene, in turn, resembles a scene from a Balzac novel with Balzac's rogue Vautrin. See more »
The movie is set in the 1930s. The two "longslide" 1911 pistols wielded by The Shadow were not developed until decades later. See more »
