Hello all. I'm Katheryne, and I decided to post after reading all your comments to each other. I've always felt slightly strange around other people because I know lots of stuff about lots of things (the more unusual the better) and  I insist upon sharing this knowledge with others. I have made the long unnecessary tangent an art form... Too bad I know of no one that appreciates it.
I don't care though. It just means I laugh out loud to myself a lot.
When I was a kid my dad was a big fan of otr, and the first experience I recall was riding home in the middle of the night listening to The Shadow (an episode called "Death Prowls At Night"). It was dark, and I was terrified, and none of my brothers seemed interested. That's what started it for me.
Now as an adult I listen to lots of different shows but I lean toward the mysteries. I still love the Shadow, but I can't listen to it in the car on the way home -- not in the dark anyway.  Some of these stories I've heard a thousand times, and they still freak me out. I think with the Shadow it's the music.
You know, everything I just said sounds really lame.

Absolute nonsense! If there's anyone here who sounds really lame, it's definitely Jake. Oh wait, that's me...

Tangents?  Mysteries?  Scared of the Dark?  You're going to fit in here juuuuust fine.   ;)

You're probably charming, intelligent and good-looking too.  We tend to attract people like that. 


Right guys?

Welcome home Katheryne.  ;)

I love The Shadow too and love to talk about it.
In fact, if you are interested, I did just that: http://otrbuffet.blogspot.com/2012/01/interterview-with-barry-about-welles.html

I can get completely behind what Peter says!  :D

And Thank you Barry! I do kind of feel like I'm being welcomed Home, strange as that is to say.
I also spent a little time and read your blog. It's not bad at all, but for some reason Orson Welles always rubbed me the
wrong way. It's proably because he wasn't the first voice I heard so he suffered by comparison, but I prefer to think it was because he
laugh wasn't nearly as creepy to me. It was kind of bad actually, but he did master the bored rich playboy sound, as much as I know what a bored rich playboy sounds like which is not at all.
I really like Agnes Moorehead, and though they had great compatibility I thought she did better on her own. The Suspense episodes she did were amazing. She could really get you to the edge of your chair especially in Sorry, Wrong Number. I didn't care for the film which I wanted them to kill Susan Hayward by the end.
Well, I didn't rant on with that very long, but I did come on and say Hey- you're great, but I totally disagree with you.
That never goes over well.

I actually heard recently that they had to bring another actor in to do the creepy Shadow laugh because Orson Wells just couldn't get it right.

I'd heard that story for years as well, though I've recently read that Orson could do it but it wasn't the same. On some episodes you hear it as sort of a sinister snicker. It was theorized that the laugh used was Frank Readick's, to keep the same sound as the previous version of The Shadow, where he was just a narrator. Beats me which is true.

I saw the film first, with Barbara Stanwyck as the helpless woman and thought it was fabulous. I listened to the Moorehead version later, well the earliest recording anyway and enjoyed that as well. I like both actresses immensely so it is hard to pick which on I like the most. It is a bit like saying whether I like Bette Davis or Joan Crawford more....just too close.
