Re: The Shadow, the Phantom or Dick Tracy?
Another problem with the Phantom is the characterisation of the lead character.
Billy Zane apparently worked out for two years to get in shape, and he certainly looks perfect for a 30's matinee hero. However, much effort is made to build up the Phantom as a menacing, awe-inspiring figure - and then it turns out he's the nicest, smiliest, politest gent on the block. He's even softly spoken!
