Bottom half of double bill at the ABC
24 December 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was recently shown at the NFT as part of the British B Movie season.Although the heading of the films entry gives the impression that it was made for TV in fact many of them were shown as the second feature on double bills on the ABC circuit in the early 1960s.The thing that really made the films stand out was the haunting tune "Man of Mystery" played as the title music on all of the films and the revolving bust of Edgar Wallace which is partly spotlit and shrouded in fog.So very evocative.It is also interesting to see established actors and stars in the making.John Le Mesurier was already an established actor when he appeared in this film but i am sure that he could not have imagined that he would be offered a part,Sgt Wilson in Dads Army,which would make him a household name Even this Christmas he can be seen in this role.Wallace seemed to like to make his plots as involved as he could.The trouble is that as in this film you have the last 10 minutes where everything has to be explained.Having said that it is not difficult to spot whodunnit.If you are a fan of this type of film the it is worth a view.
