What did you think of the movie with the Baldwin? Faithful?
It's a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. If they had toned down the cheesy acting but kept it an Indiana Jones style action comedy I think it would have been far more successful than it was. The Shadow has quite a convoluted history with the Pulp Magazines, radio shows and Saturday morning serials all contributing and altering his back story so the film makers only had to keep to the basics then after that they had a free reign to play about with the character.
