A 1994 {{Universal}} live-action film based off the pulp hero ''Radio/TheShadow'', the movie follows the adventures of Lamont Cranston (Creator/AlecBaldwin), who uses his psychic powers as the Shadow to hunt criminals in New York City to make up for the atrocities he committed in the past. But all is not well in the Big Apple - Shiwan Khan (John Lone), the last descendant of Genghis and fellow psychic, has come to finish his great-grandscestor's work, and he's not about to let anyone stand in his way. Margo Lane, Lamont's love interest, was played by Penelope Ann Miller, while her father, physicist Reinhardt Lane, was played by Creator/IanMcKellen.

There was a novelization by Creator/JamesLuceno that valiantly tries to tie the movie into the pulps and radio series. The makers were hoping to start an entire new superhero film franchise but the film performed poorly at the box office and the franchise was stillborn.
