  The Shadow (1994)
The movie Shadow character is a combination of the radio show and the pulp magazine versions.
The elements from the radio show are his ability to be become invisible, the appearance of Margo Lane and the establishment of Lamont Cranston as the Shadow's actual civilian identity.
The special effects are brilliant (at one point, as water rises in an enclosed room, the invisible Shadow's legs make deep dents in the rising water) and very well used throughout, so that they are not intrusive but rather a part of the story.

The Shadow's birth as a furtive crime solver was practically an accident: the character's name first belonged to the announcer (James LaCurto and, later, Frank Readick) of Detective Stories, a radio show whose plots were drawn from the pulp magazine of the same name.

In 1981, The Shadow became one of the acknowledged influences for V, the title character in V for Vendetta.

 The Jungian Concept of The Shadow
In this article I will outline some of the Jungian concepts of the Shadow, which has an important role linked closely with the Anima and Animus, the importance of which will be understood by those who have undertaken Trance Exercise 5.
As a side note, it is interesting to note that Jung's concepts of the Shadow (along with the persona, superman and the wise old man) were heavily influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche, the prominent German philosopher.
The actions of the Shadow usually happen where adaptation is weakest, and at the same time reveal the reason for its weakness – that is a degree of inferiority and the existence of a lower level of personality.

 Shadow   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The cross-section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or reverse projection of the object blocking the light.
The smaller the angle between the direction of the light and the surface on which the shadow occurs, the longer the shadow is. If the object is close to the light source, the shadow is large.
The Brothers of the Shadow are therefore those who, being essentially of the nature of matter, instinctively choose and follow the path along which they are most strongly drawn, that is, the path of matter or of the shadows.

 Jung: On The Shadow
Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the fler and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it.

It was quite natural, therefore, that his shadow should fall on the wall of the opposite house; so that, as he sat amongst the flowers on his balcony, when he moved, his shadow moved also.
This was done, it might be from pride, or perhaps that the new shadow might cling to him, but the prostrate shadow remained quite quiet and at rest, in order that it might listen, for it wanted to know how a shadow could be sent away by its master, and become a man itself.
The shadow always knew when to take the place of honor, but the learned man took no notice of it, for he had a good heart, and was exceedingly mild and friendly.

 Shadow   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Shadow is occasionally an animal or part-animal figure, but usually a person of the same sex as the ego-bearer (dreamer/hero/heroine) but with opposite qualities (dark, shady, dangerous).
This involves being taken over by the shadow, “acting out” in the voice of the shadow without consciously choosing to do so and often without realizing that one is doing this.
we can avoid shadow possession and withdraw shadow projection by recognizing that these qualities are really part of ourselves and by attempting to channel their negative aspects in positive directions.

In the course of three weeks he had a very fair shadow, which, when he set out for his home in the northern lands, grew more and more in the journey, so that at last it was so long and so large, that it was more than sufficient.
