Publisher's Summary

This episode of The Shadow was originally broadcast on October 3, 1937. "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" From 1930-1954, the wealthy Lamont Cranston was one of the best-known characters on radio, using his mystical powers to fight crime. The only person who knew The Shadow's true identity was his "friend and companion, the lovely Margot Lane". Through the years, The Shadow was portrayed by Frank Readick, Orson Welles, Bill Johnstone, Bret Morrison, and others. As listeners were reminded at the end of every episode, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay! The Shadow knows!"


What the Critics Say

"As one of the basic prototypes of what has come to be called Pop Art, the Shadow is unique and irreplaceable, a legend in his own time. A classic character who looms slouch hat and shoulders above all others of his kind, he is an inevitable as a guilty conscience, an unseen power that awakens within all of us our most deep-rooted fears of mortal retribution. There has never been a force quite like him." (Jim Harmon, The Great Radio Heroes)

Submerine Pirates.

Another exciting adventure of the Shadow. Another mad man is out mastered by the Master crime fighter. Seems all the Shadows villains are all mad men. They make some of Batman's foes look mild in comparison. This was also the first Shadow adventure I ever listened to. I must of been nine and it was on a tape cassette I listened to. The memory makes me feel old. I've been a shadow fan for almost 30 years. Long live the Shadow.
