Behind the Mask Reviews:

The Shadow is one of the nice pre-comic ebook heroes of the 1930s, so you'd think that this movie would be a lot more fun than it is. The trouble is that the film-makers didn't seem much interested in making a Shadow movie ... what we have here is a not very nice detective film with lots of ill-considered "humorous" scenes.Not even a curiosity, this is not for Shadow fans. Take a look at the 1940 chapter serial with Victor Jory. Much closer to the original Shadow concept. Though there's still loads of potential for someone to create the definitive screen adaptation of The Shadow ... 'cos Russell Mulcahy's 1994 effort wasn't it either ...


Second of three go rounds with Kane Richmond as Lamont Cranston aka the Shadow. In these movies Cranston is not like the pulp/radio hero with the ability to cloud men's minds, instead he dressed all in black and a mask and stands in the shadows. Ah well.The plot of the movie has Cranston foregoing his wedding to Margo Lane in order to clear his name. It seems that some one impersonating the Shadow has killed a blackmailing reporter. The death may have been lucky since it appears the no goodnik was typing out who the shadow really was when he was killed.More comedy then mystery this is a waste of celluloid since the comedy isn't very funny and the mystery nonexistent (you know who the assassin is the minute he walks on screen). Mostly this is lots of round and round the different territories for no nice reason another than slay time.Much of the first ten mins is the reporter going around threatening all of his victims in order to lay out the suspects. Its boring. Worse is the clue that reveals who the assassin is is so painfully obvious that that no one, not even police as stupid as the ones in this film, would have missed it.If you can take it for what it is (and forgive its deep flaws) you have an okay time killer, but at the same time its an hour you will never receive back. Easy the worst of this set of three Shadow films.


This movie is about Lamont Cranston trying to track down a criminal who is masquerading as the "Shadow" and murdering members of the underworld. (And, giving the Shadow a "bad name").This movie has a LOT of potential (and it's VERY intelligent how the murderer pulls it off), BUT the jealous antics of Margo Lane & mate receive to be sooo annoying that it all but ruins the film. (I'm glad to tell that Lamont now SPANKS her at the end of the film!). It's a shame that he didn't do that at the BEGINNING of this film!Norm
