Arthur Askey and Richard Murdoch are discovered after months of living on the roof of Broadcasting House with their chickens and Lewis the goat, waiting for their chance at stardom. On their subsequent aimless travels in their overladen car, the Askeytoff II, they end up renting the haunted Droom Castle for the princely sum of £3. The perfectly natural explanation for the ghost is that Nazis are at the bottom of it all (in the basement), using a TV hook-up to Berlin. Of course Arthur has a...

The Shadow Strikes * 1937 This is Lamont Cranston, aka The Shadow. It stars Rod La Rocque and Agnes Anderson. Margo Lane is absent; and the Shadow character lacks the supernatural ability that makes him fun; but it's not a bad whodunnit. There are some funny bits, and some people think of it as a comedy. More information can be found on IMDB The source for this upload can be found elsewhere on archive.org. I cleaned up the audio and decided to share it back to this site.

Unfortunately he makes the acquaintance of a gang of acquisitive gun-toting thieves who think he's a useful contact to have in the furtherance of their aims.
