"Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows!" One of the best known characters in all of old time radio is the wealthy Lamont Cranston who used the mystical powers he learned in India to fight crime. As the announcer would tell the faithful listeners each week, "Cranston is known to the underworld as the Shadow, never seen, only heard, as a haunting to superstitious minds, as a ghost, as inevitable as a guilty conscience..." The only person who knew The Shadow's true identity was his "friend and companion, the lovely Margo Lane". The pair got some occasional help from Police Comissioner Weston and Shrevvy, the comically chatty taxi driver. Together they foiled the wicked plans of robbers, murderers, gangsters, mad scientists and aliens! As listeners were reminded at the end of every episode, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay! The Shadow knows!"
