Did You Know?


Director Harald Reinl wanted a relatively unknown actor for the role of Peter Clifton in order to confuse the audience more about the character's position and eventually casted stage actor Hellmut Lange. Reinl wanted the audience to remain unsure about the ambiguous character of Clifton till the ending of the film. Lange later went on to become one of Germany's most popular Television-Actors in the late 60ies. See more »

Who is the forger?
8 June 2008 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Karin Dor ("The Green Archer") and Siegfried Lowitz ("Der Frosch mit der Maske") return for the 7th entry of the Edgar Wallace series, while Hellmut Lange stars for the first time as Peter Clifton who marries the beautiful Jane (Karin Dor). Jane discovers a printing machine for banknotes in her new home. Has she just married "The Forger of London", or who else could be responsible for the counterfeits? Funny enough, Peter doesn't know that himself because he seems to be a victim of schizophrenia... which Jane once dryly describes to him thus: "Can you imagine how interesting it is to have a husband who never knows where he wakes up?" Typical music by Martin Böttcher, unusual story, powerfully directed by Harald Reinl - a good movie, even if none of the most popular in the series. Apparently the producers tried to break fresh ground here instead of repeating a formula, and this courage is one reason why the Edgar Wallace series lasted so long.
