The opening credits incorrectly list "Advance Magazine Publishers, Inc." as the creators of "The Shadow." The version seen in the movie was originally created by "Street and Smith Publications" to promote its "Detective Story Magazine" in 1930. See more »
While Moe's cab's design is based on a Cord automobile, it appears to have been built on a rear-wheel-drive chassis, based on its handling. The Cord was front-wheel-drive. See more »
The Shadow is one of the best super-hero films ever made. Ranking up their with Superman (1978) it's one of those rare gems that boasts of a cast deserving of their roles and superb writing. A sleek, noir adventure full of action, intrigue, truly evil villians, and one bombshell of a heroine. the Shadow is not one to be missed.
