HERE'S ANOTHER FINE DVD I JUST FOUND THAT FITS IN WELL WITH THE HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN: THE SHADOW KNOWS.
I've enjoyed "Dial B For Blog" for years now and the blog's maestro "Robby Reed" has produced this fine documentary about the classic pulp magazine/radio show/movie hero "THE SHADOW" tracing the history of the character from conception to the present day. The documentary tracks seemingly every angle of the Shadow and features scads of audio clips from the radio shows and interviews with almost everyone involved (many taken from that superb Radiola Records audio documentary "THE STORY OF THE SHADOW") as well as movie clips and zillions of images from the pulp magazines. We hear audio from all the Shadows including, of course, Orson Welles, Bill Johnstone and Bret Morison as well as original "Margot Lane" Agnes Moorehead, SHADOW creator Walter Gibson, radio announcer Ken Roberts, 90's movie Shadow Alec Baldwin, Shadow scholar Anthony Tollin and many more. This is a DVD I highly recommend and, like HORRIBLE HORROR with Zacherley, makes perfect October viewing.
