Re: The Shadow, the Phantom or Dick Tracy?
DICK TRACY... only because it was done with style, taste & dignity! ! !
the phantom was true to the material but badly acted... Billy Zane played himself.. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN DONE SO MUCH BETTER...
The Shadow, I'm sorry to say (BEING ONE OF MY FAVORITES) didn't hit the mark...it could have been as Dark as 1997's Spawn, but they chose to go the fun, campy route! ! ! They used some Aussie guy who had only done music videos up to that point to direct! ! !
Alec Baldwin could have been a much better Shadow if the script was better... WHEN I THINK THE SHADOW, i think the 1940 movie serial.SUCH A BETTER FILM
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
