    Description

    The Shadow Strikes (Grand National, 1937). Fine- on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    By far the best format image for this fun picture, and offered for only the second time, this half sheet is for the first feature film appearance of popular radio and pulp magazine hero The Shadow, starring Rod La Rocque as the mysterious vigilante. Lamont Cranston, a lawyer and investigator by day, dons a disguise at night to find the guilty and cloud their minds to remain hidden, laughing in the darkness. In this feature, The Shadow solves the murder of a wealthy scion, who had numerous enemies including his heirs. Lynn Anders, James Blakeley, and Walter McGrail co-star. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes, small chips, and a reattached chip in the upper right corner. Corrections were also made to two vertical tears that extended into the "W" of "Shadow," indicating there may have been an attempt to fold the poster. One of the tears began in the upper border and the other in the lower border. There was also a tear from the left edge that ran to just above the "W" of "Shadow." The borders have been airbrushed. Excellent conservation has rendered this poster ready for display as part of any mystery collection.
