2.1 - The Shadow

Who knows what film knowledge lurks in the hearts of film-based podcasts?

Forgotten Cinema knows!!!

Season 2 kicks off with a helping of 90's style pulp noir as the Mikes tackle the 1994 film, The Shadow, starring Alec Baldwin. Our hosts explore the interesting origin story created for the film, it's simple yet muddied story, whether it's embracing of 90's cheese hurts or helps the film, and how to do right by The Shadow character in today's superhero-obsessed world. 

So grab your popcorn, soda, and secret decoder ring, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.

About the Podcast

Forgotten Cinema
A podcast about forgotten films that deserve a second chance
Welcome to Forgotten Cinema! Each episode, Mike Field and Mike Butler highlight a film that for a variety of reasons was forgotten by audiences. Whether it be because a more popular movie was released at the same time or the movie simply didn’t catch on with an audience in the its initial run. We’ll discuss what we love about the movie or perhaps don’t love about it and decide whether the movie is worth a revisit.
