Only the Shadow Really Knows!

When someone asks a question in a post reply, I sometimes quip, “Only The Shadow Really Knows!

What does that mean, anyway!?


The Shadow is the name of a collection of serialized dramas, originally in 1930s pulp novels, and then in a wide variety of Shadow media. One of the most famous adventure hero’s of 20th century North America, The Shadow has been featured on the radio, in a long-running pulp magazine series, in American comic books, comic strips, television series, video games, and at least five featured films. The radio drama included episodes voiced by Orson Welles.

Today, The Shadow assumes various identities for his crime fighting work, most notably that perpetrator on the Internet!

Yes! All’s well and good what you have said. But again, what does The Shadow Know!?


Only The Shadow Really Knows!

For Sure!

    The Shadow movie (starring Alec Baldwin), was one of my favorites back then. Actually, only GOD really knows everything.
