THE SHADOW in
"THE CAVERNS OF DEATH”
Lobby Card art by Francesco Francavilla
Time for another Old Time Radio episode of the Shadow (with legendary Orson Welles providing the voice of Cranston/Shadow).
While visiting a cave just opened to the public, a few students fall down a pit. A rescue team is sent to find any survivors (or at least to recuperate the students’ bodies) but they find nothing. It seems a case for the Shadow! As matter of fact Lamont and Margot go down the cave to investigate and they discover a series of sinister activities in the lower levels of the caverns.
I have to admit I was fascinated by the description of the villain in this episode: a man who wears a gas mask all the time so no one has ever seen his face. Pretty cool, uh? That was definitely calling to be the main subject of my lobby card.
Enjoy the episode clicking on the link below.
