The Shadow Knows, part 10: The Shadow Unmasks

The best known identity used by the Shadow was that of Lamont Cranston.

A Shadow pulp in which the Shadow discusses his identity. Kent Allard was a fighter pilot in WWI, and this is who the Shadow supposedly really is.

Next to be discussed.

Kent Allard looked for a new occupation after the war, and was drawn to fighting crime. In a later story, though, it's noted that Kent Allard is actually just another identity that the “real” Shadow uses.

There is also a possibility that the real face of the Shadow is terribly mutilated, and is covered with some sort of base material that enables him to chance his facial appearance.
