Sydney Hayers, of course !!!

I am not so surprised that this Edgard Wallace Mystery episode is so tremendous. Look who is the director...

Sydney Hayers, the film maker from UK who directed so many films and TV series all over the years. One of best B directors from Britain. I'll put him on the same scale as Don Sharp, Robert Fuest, Don Chaffey and some others of this kind. They all provided good pieces of work.

I think this TV episode - or movie - is one of the best of the entire series. A terrific plot - already explained in the topic line - and above all a very impressive way of filming. Far away from other items from the same period which were flat and boring.

I recommend it.
