The Shadow Knows: My "scariest-ever" old time radio program, narrated by famous actor Orsen Wells, 1937. I still get shivers listening to this video. The program, loosely adapted from the popular pulp magazine series, told the story of Lamont Cranston, a wealthy young man-about-town who used his hypnotic powers to cloud men's minds so that they could not see him, fighting crime as an Invisible Avenger known only as The Shadow. As a five and six-year old I was pretty much held captive by my teenage cousins Jim and Norma Sharpe who delighted in my horror at the Shadow's heavy breathing as we listened to the program in my Aunt Hattie's living room.
