Joachim Fuchsberger is protecting Brigitte Grothum from attempts on her life without knowing their cause
2 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've now seen enough of the Rialto-produced krimis based on Edgar Wallace stories, to conclude that they all are very likely to provide solid mystery entertainment, even the later ones done in color. There is something of an acting troupe, more or less, in the tradition of Ingmar Bergman or the early Warner Brothers, for that matter. One sees the same faces popping up in various roles, but there are also always some new faces.

Klaus Kinski appeared in about 18 of these Wallace or Wallace-inspired krimis from different producers. He can be counted on to spice up the proceedings. Joachim Fuchsberger is in over 12. Eddie Arendt (his birth name) appeared in about 20. Fritz Rasp, who had starred in some famous movies in the 1920s, is in maybe half a dozen. My numbers are approximate.

The music of these films is unique. The black and whites look as good as many a film noir, with a nice number of good shots. The mysteries are typically complex and do not give away the endings. I do not consider these krimis as film noirs but as mysteries into which some noir elements have filtered to good effect, enough so that noir fans often collect these films and enjoy them.

A notable performance, always interesting, in "The Strange Countess" is that of the countess herself, Lil Dagover, in movies since 1916! I think this was her only role in a Wallace krimi.

Basically you can't go wrong to watch one of this group of films. They're fresh 50 years later.
