"The Temple Bells of Neban" (Oct 24, 1937)
Beautiful exotic dancers, snake charmers, ancient Indian Mysticism, deadly cobras, telepathy: this episode has them all!
We get chance to glimpse at The Shadow's past as he finally meets someone who has been trained in the remote and mysterious area of India where he learned his power to control minds and make himself invisible. As matter of fact, the exotic woman knows how to pierce in that power and unveal the Shadow so to be an easy target for a gun or even a deadly cobra.
It's funny that in the very intro (the story then will play as a flashback that will bring the listeners to the point the episodes starts with) the woman is threatening the Shadow by saying this is the end of his carreer: and here I was thinking that fighting the crime was more a mission than a carreer ;)
The quality of the audio of this particular episode is not one of the best but we are talking of 70 years old recordings here, so we can't really complain, can we?
Enjoy the show and have a great (pulp) Sunday!
