What evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! And, he proves it in this trio of classic crime-busting adventures. Rod La Rocque and Richard Derr star as Lamont Cranston in these spine-tingling features based on the classic radio serial: Our hero fights banking scams and murder in INTERNATIONAL CRIME, works to overthrow an oppressive dictator in INVISIBLE AVENGER, and exposes a gambling ring in THE SHADOW STRIKES.
International Crime: An explosion kills a prestigious banker during an attempted robbery. Lamont Cranston (Rod La Rocque) suggests that it was murder and not just the work of notorious safecracker Honest John. When The Shadow pursues a false tip-off to the robbery, he stumbles upon an international banking scam with ties to murder.
Invisible Avenger: The legendary mind-clouding man of mystery is back in this film noir tale set in New Orleans, where nothing is ever as it seems. Exiled Spanish leader Pablo Ramirez is hiding out on Bourbon Street as plans are laid to overthrow the oppressive dictatorship that currently exists in his country. A fascist generalissimo has planted assassins in the city to dispose of Ramirez and Lamont Cranston (Richard Derr) is summoned to protect him.
The Shadow Strikes: A rich man is killed in the process of writing his will. Lamont Cranston (Rod La Rocque) finds numerous suspects - each with their own motive for committing murder. The trail of clues leads him to an underground gambling ring linked to the killer. The police, suspicious of The Shadow's motives, interfere with the investigation in an effort to discover his true identity.
