Dead and vanished
8 June 2008 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Myrna tells the police where they can arrest a few heroin dealers. Talking too much was a bad mistake, of course - she is shot shortly afterwards by the gangsters. But then her corpse disappears and the case becomes more and more strange. Myrna's sister arrives in London and asks the police for protection, but the gangsters are always one step ahead. Hansjörg Felmy, Uschi Glas and Werner Peters are starring in this picture which also has beauties like young Ingrid Steeger and Brigitte Skay to show some skin. Vadim Glowna plays a photographer who thinks he's just found the best story of his life. Solid crime flick which you'll enjoy if you enjoyed the others, its virtue is that the story isn't too predictable. This was the last movie of the Edgar Wallace series by a German director (Harald Philipp); 2 more movies were shot by Italians („What Have They Done to Solange?" and „Seven Blood-Stained Orchids"), clearly adding stylistic means of the so-called Giallo, before one of the most successful cinema brand names of the 1960s was laid to rest in 1972.
