With dynamited railroads, wrecked airplanes and blown-up industrial plants, nothing is safe from the machinations of the secret mastermind of the underworld known only as The Black Tiger. Enter the black garbed, masked figure known as THE SHADOW, a mysterious force for law and order, who disguised as Lamont Cranston (VICTOR JORY) sets his agents into action to combat this evil. But the police are convinced that the Black Tiger and The Shadow are one and the same. With both the hoodlums and the police gunning for The Shadow, Cranston is in for the fight of his life. His beautiful assistant, Margo Lane (VEDA ANN BORG) is in constant peril as well. Right out of the air waves and magazine stories comes the mysterious Shadow to do battle with an enemy who can become invisible! Can he triumph over this unseen evil? You will learn the answer at the end of Chapter fifteen! Based upon The Shadow character appearing in pulp magazines and on the radio. Directed by James W. Horne
