Trivia

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 »

One of the best action movies I have ever seen
7 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

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.
