This Edgar Wallace mystery is aided by some surprisingly effective performances, particularly Dudley Foster's compelling study of the quiet-spoken, vengeful doctor and Brian Haines as a totally unsubtle inquiry agent. Also the film is often directed with an astonishing degree of visual flair. It's also smartly edited and the director makes fine use of his actual locations. In fact, the only really disappointing aspect of the movie is its pedestrian music score as composed and conducted by Bernard Ebbinghouse. (Although the film's credits actually read, "Title music by Michael Carr", this is incorrect. For once in the series, Carr's familiar Edgar Wallace signature tune is NOT played here!
