"House Of Horror" (Nov 17, 1940)
This is definitely one of the best and more enjoyable episodes I have been presenting on Pulp Sunday. We got all the needed ingredients plus some extra spices to make this a classic.
A mad scientist, to start, with an accent and a passion for talking in rhymes (scientist and ...poet! :D). A crazy plan to turn women in super-soldiers by mixing their brains with the gorillas'. Crooks who kill ruthlessly with two bullets in the front. Crazy angry gorilla. An evil fortune teller (Madame Santo) who tricks her female costumers to provide bodies to the mad scientist. Margo and Lamont investigating the case of a disappeared woman. And, of course, The Shadow who saves the day once again and he even gets to shoot this time (it's becoming an habit now ;))
I know, it sounds like a crazy recipe but everything works so delightfully. Listen to it and then tell me :)
