Tony Alcalde (Steve Dano) is supposed to invite Lamont Cranston a.k.a. The Shadow (Richard Derr) to New Orleans, to help El Presidente Ramirez (Dan Mullin) to overthrow the dictator of Santa Cruz and once more become Santa Cruz' president. But on the phone with Cranston, Alcalde is murdered.

Cranston and his servant/teacher Jogendra (Mark Daniels) come to New Orleans anyhow, hang out in a few jazz clubs (Tony Alcalde was a trumpeteer, you know) and attract the attention of all those opposed o Ramirez ... but with a few tricks (including mindreading, hypnotism, telepathy and most prominently invisibility) Cranston finds his way to Ramirez anyhow ...

Then Ramirez evil twin (who is in the employ of Santa Cruz' current dictator) is executed, and on public television too, but before his death, he asks his brother for forgiveness and encourages him to overthrow the dictator ...

Eventually, Ramirez decides to return to Santa Cruz, even though even back in New Orleans, all guns point in his direction, and he asks Cranston to help him and guard his life - but before long, Ramirez is kidnapped, and when Cranston has finally found the boat he's on, he realizes that Ramirez' evil brother (who has not been executed aftter all) is behind it in a ploy to lure his brother out into the open and once and for all get rid of him. But somehow, with a litle help of Cranston, in the end, evil brother Ramirez and his second in command, the Colonel (Lee Edwards), shoot each other, and over the radio comes a message that the revolution has not only started but succeeded even before Ramirez has arrived in Santa Cruz, with the old regime already been thrown over and the populace just waiting for Ramirez.

All's well that ends well ...


Originally supposed to be the pilot for a TV-series, this film instead found its way into movie houses instead. However, the direction looks boring enough to clearly identify it as made-for-TV, and the script of the whole thing is so muddled and far-fetched, obviously noone has cared too much about this film at all, be it for TV or theatre.

A very lame crime thriller, only a few jazz-numbers thrown into the mix are pretty decent.
