Based on the 1930's pulp fiction and radio drama series, the film pits the hero against his arch enemy, Shiwan Khan, who plans to take over the world by holding a city ransom using an atom 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

Bob Kane had cited The Shadow as a major influence behind Batman. See more »
When Dr. Tam draws the design of the atomic bomb on the board, he only wipes away a small section of top-middle of the board (a circled ST can still be seen as he puts down the duster and picks up the chalk). When he finishes drawing the bomb design, everything that was originally on the middle of the board has been wiped and replaced with the bomb design. See more »
I found THE SHADOW to be simply amazing. I thought that this movie was a work of art and was the classic definition of a sleeper film. When we were blessed with this great film, it did not get the recognition it deserved. I found this film to be full of great action sequences and witty-special effects. I was disappointed to find that it got such a low vote. This movie was astonishing and I recommend it to anyone who likes creative,action films.
