Publisher's Summary

With this episode on September 26, 1937, The Shadow premiered on the Mutual radio network. It featured Orson Welles as Lamont Cranston (aka The Shadow) and Agnes Moorehead as his "friend and companion, the lovely Margot Lane". Welles starred in the series for a year, departing in September 1938. The classic line "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" was actually spoken by Frank Readick, who had previously portrayed the title character.

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)

The Shadow is the best.

My favorite actor to play the Shadow has always been Orson Welles. He will always be the best. This radio episode was the first in a long series. Long live the Shadow.

Trapped in a crime

Any additional comments?

Orson Welles is the narrator. A different version for sure! I never think of Orson Welles and The Shadow as the same but I am learning. A quick listen and worthwhile.
