The Story of the Shadow

Category: Mystery/Suspense

Catalog Number: 44642
Was: $18.95    Now: $15.16


For eighty years, fans of radio mystery have thrilled to the mocking tones of The Shadow's sinister laughter and to the daring adventures of radio's greatest crime-fighter. In this sound portrait of The Shadow, produced by David Goldin, his mysterious origins are recalled in recorded interviews by Walter Gibson, who created Lamont Cranston and wrote 283 Shadow novels, and by Ken Roberts, the announcer who introduced The Shadow broadcasts for more than a decade. Bret Morrison remembers how he won the title role, while Grace Matthews and Gertrude Warner discuss the trials and tribulations of portraying Cranston's friend and companion, Margot Lane. The recollections of scriptwriter Sydney Slon, announcer Andre Baruch, organist Rosa Rio and program syndicator Charles Michelson are also heard, bringing to life memories of the great performers who cast a long "shadow" over the golden age of radio drama.

More than two hours of a behind the scenes audio documentary about this classic series is presented here, followed by four complete Shadow radio broadcasts starring Orson Welles, Bret Morrison, Bill Johnstone, Agnes Moorehead, Gertrude Warner, and Lesley Woods.

This four hour set, originally offered as Radiola release # 4MR-3 on 4 LP vinyl records in 1985, is available again on these digitally remastered compact discs.
