What if Sam Raimi had made The Shadow?

But we all know that he couldn't get the rights so he made Darkman instead.  Taking the "horror face" concept from the first part of The Shadow's origin and running with it, creating a horror version instead.
Gonna watch this today.  Not my favorite but it's a fun little trip.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men... Victor Jory knew

Really a pretty good look for a low budget production.

The man Lamont is subduing looks a bit like Tim Curry whom Alec Baldwin's version would subdue.

Burbank?  Report!

The fedora should have been replaced with a wide brimmed hat from one of the countless Westerns that were being filmed at the time.

Not from The Shadow but this really looks like Lamont and Margo.

ON THE AIR August 7, 1938

The Mine Hunters is another episode that I am unfamiliar with.  Looking forward to enjoying this one.  There are only 6 more Orson Welles adventures left.

Part 2 of "The Conflagration Man" was published in Doc Savage #17.

What I'm reading now

Although published four months after "The Ribbon Clues" this adventure was penned directly after the aforementioned tale.  I really like reading these in the order in which Gibson wrote them as it clears up a few issues, notably the Weston/Barth fiasco.
