Hectic Edgar Wallace thriller catches its period nicely
21 December 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Edgar Walace used to be the same kind of franchise that Alistair McLean or Steven King would become.

Here we get the same succession of murderous ambushes, disguises, suspects and heedless detecting that his books offers (the fifties German films had little connection.) This team had the formula all down with the dockland atmosphere and so British players making it ring true.

Director Elvey was a sure craftsman at this stage and the pace is rapid enough to cover the illogical moments. Even the dreadful Gordon Harker is in his element.
