A nice time capsule of 1960s Britain
13 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Edgar Wallace films produced by Merton Park Studios in the early 1960s and were made for the cinema as supporting features to the main film; they were not made for television. The same also applies for the Edgar Lustgarten Scales of Justice series of films.

I remember watching many Edgar Wallace episodes including this one when Channel 4 repeated them in the early 1980s; it was nice to see early appearances of later well-known actors and actresses such as Rosemary Leach, Jean Marsh (Upstairs Downstairs) Mike Pratt (Randall & Hopkirk) I have bought The Edgar Wallace Anthology DVD set from Network DVD; I look forwarding to watching them once again.
