The Shadow 1933 film Crime Thriller. Very different from the radio series, but in those days no special efx like now.
Thought I'd take a little time to post this old piece. It's so different from the Radio drama series I've been posting.
When I was a kid posted in front of our old RCA radio, The Shadow was the most scary and horrifying thing, besides Inner Sanctum and Weird Tales, I'd heard.
I remember the creepy voice of the Shadow and all the action that drew me into it.
The movie has everything in black and white pictures. Literally, unlike today's modern color films. It depends more on the suspense and the dynamics of the actors, since they just didn't have the budgets or the techniques to do effects like today.
1933 was bout the time that King Kong came out, and Willis O'Brien knocked the socks off movie goers with that splendid feast for the eyes special effects laden movie using the technique of stop motion.
