dementomstie I'm too much of a fan not to say: Orson Wells, one of the best actors to ever portray The Shadow was the only one who couldn't do the infamous laugh at the beginning and end of the episodes. I forget who did them for him, and don't feel like going to wikipedia right now.
The Shadow always gets 5 stars. Yes, even the Alec Baldwin movie version.
Also, this is where the phrase "Crime Doesn't Pay" was coined.
13.5 Part of what was so awesome about Welles' tenure was that they took Cranston's mental powers as more than an invisibility gimmick. He was always using additional tricks like this one here--or the one in another episode where he forced a shellshocked war veteran to hold onto a live hand grenade through sheer force of will.
Welles' Shadow could be kind of dark.
MrBuddy Isn't that Agnes Moorehead, you know Endora the mother of Samantha from Bewitched, doing the voice of Margot?
