Did You Know?


Though not an adaption of original material by Edgar Wallace, this film was advertised in Germany as part of the famous Edgar Wallace Series. It was such a huge flop that the Producers at Rialto Film decided to delay any future plans to do further Edgar Wallace Films. Due to the great success of Dario Argento's "L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo" (1969) which was advertised as an adaption of a story by Wallace's son Bryan Edgar, Rialto's series re-started in 1971.

The Passion of the Kinski
13 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Liz and Helen, a mod-Gothic mystery from Riccardo Freda, has some points in common with one of the director's earlier films, The Horrible Dr. Hichcock. Each concerns a man who believes his wife to be deceased, only to be confronted by creepy evidence to contrary. Then, too, there's the extravagant, romantic atmosphere, thunderstorms, and lurid melodramatic scenes.

Distinguishing Liz and Helen, however, is its Swinging London setting, complete with a disorienting visit to a hippie dance club with colored lights, topless birds, motorcycles, and psychedelic music. The attentive viewer will be further unsettled by the questionable motivation of its protagonist, straight-laced but tortured industrialist John Alexander, played by a simmeringly earnest Klaus Kinski.

The production values aren't consistently impressive. In one scene Kinski pretends to be pummeled by people clearly not in the same room, and the English actor who dubs the lead is laughably un-Kinski. Still, Liz and Helen does more than compensate for its shortcomings with mood and stylistic flair. Recommended to the open-minded and those wanting to see Kinski do something other than glare crazily, eat bugs, and kill people.
