His real name is Kit Walker, but to friend and foe alike he is the masked crusader known as the Phantom! One of the most enduring comic-strip heroes, The Phantom has thrilled worldwide audiences since 1936.
The fictional story starts over 400 years ago, when pirates wreck Walker's ship off the African coast. Rescued by Pygmies, he vows to fight piracy, greed and injustice wherever they occur. The real story starts with Lee Falk, who invented the hero and has kept The Phantom alive for over 60 years.
In THE PHANTOM, Falk talks about his famous character, tells why he still writes the stories, and reveals The Phantom's surprising role in World War II! See how the crime-fighter has evolved over the years, from the earliest comic books to the recent Hollywood blockbuster. And in exclusive interviews, the films stars, including The Phantom himself, Billy Zane, discuss bringing this comic-book icon to life.
