About This Film
Overview

SHADOW MAN (Street of Shadows) – The ex-girlfriend of a London pinball joint (Cesar Romero) is found stabbed to death in his quarters, so naturally the bobbies come looking for Romero. His luck gets worse when he turns for help to a crippled employee–the man who committed the crime! “The suspense element is well established by the direction and the mood.”—Variety. 1953|76 min.|B&W|1.33:NR
