This is the complete 83 minute version which is much sharper and with a smaller download file than the 80 minute print already here at IA. The Hitchcock touch is readily apparent in this highly entertaining romantic thriller spiced with dashes of wry humor. Good cast and good FX with convincing miniatures. Adapted from Josephine Tey's novel, "A Shilling For Candles." One of Hitchcock's last all-British productions before the start of his Hollywood years. P.S. It's easy to spot Hitch...

A newspaper reporter, with a desparate need for $5,000, borrows the money from a "shady character." Years later the reporter is charged with a murder he did not commit. Spoiler alert, the truth comes out in the end, the bad guy gets what's coming to him, and the good guy has a bright future. There's a little drama along the way, but there's no treasure map. I found this on this website; with most of the opening credits missing, and too much hiss and crackle in the audio. I used a shot...

Another military themed movie, made during the 2nd World War, so it's a little on the "gung ho" side. This is a little different from the other copy that is available, here. The opening title music has been restored and the hiss, pop, crackle has been cleaned from the audio. There are a lot of familiar faces, including Robert Lowery, who would later play Bruce Wayne/Batman in the "Batman and Robin" serial (1949).

This film has Lamont Cranston, aka The Shadow, and was the only one that showed him with the power to cloud men's minds, to make himself unseen. It has the look of a TV show, and is reported to have been conceived as a series pilot. The makers decided to release it as a movie, to be shown in theaters, instead. None of the characters from the radio show, other than Lamont Cranston, appear in this story. It's most fun when he uses his mind clouding ability to vanish.
