Reviews
Mine: A great look. A fun to watch, if ultimatly a bit empty. Could have been much better.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Lamont Cranston, having lived a life of moral degradation, is ``reborn'' as a singleminded crimefighter with the ability to cloud men's minds. This adaptation of the venerable pulp novels and beloved radio show (brought to the screen before in the late 1930s, and in a 1940 serial) comes frustratingly close to working, but fails. Cranston is both inscrutable and uninteresting. Great production design and wonderful effects get lost in a movie that keeps the viewer at arm's length throughout. And what a waste of a great supporting cast!
