Our thanks to Mark for sending us to the Listener Library this week for a special treat, “The Case of the Flaming Skull,” an episode of The Shadow that was rebroadcast as part of Mystery Playhouse. It’s a treat because we get Peter Lorre serving as host to the Shadow! In this particular episode, our masked hero squares off against a glowing skeletal thief who may have abducted a scientist! What has driven this creature to pursue its thefts? Is the entity a supernatural horror, a product of aberrant science, or a clever fraud? Just how many Batman villains did this episode inspire? Listen for yourself and find out! Then vote and let us know what you think!

Does The Case of the Flaming Skull stand the test of time?
  • It's a timeless classic. It definitely stands the test of time.
  • There may be some antiquated moments, but overall it's great. It stands the test of time.
  • It may be historically significant or just fun, but it doesn't stand the test of time.
  • It's not worth revisiting. It definitely does not stand the test of time.
