Publisher's Summary

This episode of The Shadow was originally broadcast on December 31, 1939. "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!"

Critic Reviews

"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)

Margot is in trouble!

If you could sum up The Cat That Killed in three words, what would they be?

There are hisses and pops in this recording. The age of the recording is obvious.

A crazed cat as large as a human kidnaps Margot Lane and the Shadow must save her before it is too late.
