Trivia

When Director Alfred Vohrer fell ill during the shooting, producer Horst Wendlandt hired director / writer Will Tremper to complete the remaining scenes. According to Assistant Director Eva Ebner, Tremper didn't exactly know what to do (and wasn't interested either) and most of the scenes were directed by Ebner and Cinematographer Karl Löb (both long-time companions and friends of Vohrer as well).

In order to clear his name, the Hexer and Eddi Arentt help out Heinz Drache
23 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Neues vom Hexer" is a very good Edgar Wallace krimi. I have yet to see a bad one. (The name Arentt has an extra t on purpose because the IMDb spellchecker keeps changing it to Aren't, which offends me more than the extra t. And this is my way of informing IMDb of this issue. It hasn't produced a solution as yet, however.)

These stories frequently feature murders within a family so that a large inheritance will fall into the hands of an inheritor. In this one, there is a slight variation. Hatred seems to be the motivation. The murderer shifts the blame to the Hexer. That motivates the Hexer to come out of retirement to clear his name. He's aided by Eddi Arentt in an excellent performance even for him. The Hexer's efforts aid detective Heinz Drache.

It's not the story that makes this picture good, although it's complex and well-handled. It's really the cast's abilities to bring the characters to life and various "bits" that the movie contains. Take Siegfried Schurenberg for one. He consistently elaborates his character, especially his control of his attraction to the opposite sex. Klaus Kinski usually has minor roles but invariably fills them out in interesting ways. Arentt is in a class by himself. This movie has one bit in which the Hexer is seen reading an Edgar Wallace book named "Neues vom Hexer". A young boy has an extended sequence in which he is with real tigers. He gets on the back of one and rides it. He nuzzles it head to head too. Robert Hoffmann has a well-acted role at the outset. I could go on and on about how each scene uses the cast's talents. These are well-directed movies.
