Synopsis Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows. Based on the long- running radio program, this atmospheric feature follows the exploits of Lamont Cranston, aka the Shadow, as he battles the last descendant of Ghengis Khan who has come to take over New York City through mass hypnosis. See other new releases, Behind the Mask (1937) and The Shadow Strikes (1937) for the first film adventures of the Shadow.A moody and atmospheric crime film, inspired by a popular radio show that ran for over 25 years. In another, better time, crime boss Lamont Cranston, using the name Ying Ko, ruled Tibet's underworld. Then someone slashed him with a strange and powerful weapon, changing Cranston forever, both physically and psychically. Now, he lurks in the shadows of Manhattan, battling gangsters -- including one particularly evil man who has followed him from Tibet.Produced by Bregman-Baer Productions, Inc.

Rated BBFC 12 by the British Board of Film Classification....Baldwin's interior struggle is the stuff of literature... - Recommended...THE SHADOW displays considerable bravura....A pleasing period look......Sleek, entertaining....Baldwin [is] a wily actor who brings along just the right mix of do-goodism and evil potential......It has the benefit of a combination of gorgeous production design and eye-catching visual effects. If ever a film looked exactly the way you hoped and imagined it would, THE SHADOW is it......If you respond to film noir, if you like dark streets and women with scarlet lips and big fast cars with running boards, the look of this movie will work some kind of magic....Style and tone are everything with a movie like this...
