I'm being nice here

because a 3 is pretty darned generous.

A potentially good short is ruined by being expanded into a feature-length comedy. Oh sure, there is a mystery but does anyone care? Everyone but The Shadow is an idiot in this film. Yes, Cardona, Weston, Shrevvy & Margot already were but... between the slapstick and the elevator obsessed old biddies (does anyone out there know how to strangle a character on a DVD?) this was a deserved good end to bad rubbish that the Kane Richmond Shadow series had become.

Go out of your way to avoid this one, unplug your set, leave the house if need be. The Shadow would have wept over this film.
