Warner Bros Conjures Up ‘Mandrake The Magician’

When I was growing up, I was a big listener of radio shows, like “The CBS Radio Mystery Theater” (hosted first by E.G. Marshall, followed by Tammy Grimes), “The Mysterious Traveler,” “The Green Hornet,” “Inner Sanctum,” and “Chondu, The Magician.”

A show that I didn’t listen to much was “Mandrake The Magician,” though it appears that someone at Warner Bros. may have, because it’s headed to the big screen.

I have always been fond of old time radio, though hopefully ‘Mandrake’ avoids the fate of “The Phantom,” and “The Green Hornet,” and to a lesser extent, “The Shadow” (though “The Shadow” is supposed to be relaunched, with Sam Raimi producing and David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hard Candy) directing.
