The Vanishing Shadow, a classic 1930s cliffhanger from Universal Pictures, which has never had an official video release on any format, is now available for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD from MVD Entertainment Group and VCI Entertainment.
Produced from the original studio film elements, the 12-episode Universal serial follows a son who avenges the death of his father at the hands of corrupt politicians. He develops a wide variety of complex devices in his crusade — ray guns, robots and a “vanishing belt.”
The serial features what is believed to be the first appearance of a handheld ray gun in film.
