Trivia

For the first time in Rialto's Edgar Wallace Series, this black-and-white film featured colored opening credits with blood red letters on a b/w-Background. This tradition was kept in the future with many different colors used. Until the late 90ies, the colored opening credits were always shown in black and white on German Television and were sometimes unreadable. See more »

Alternate Versions

Till 2003 the opening credits of the movie were shown in black & white in TV. In the theatrical version and the TV versions since 2003 they show the opening titles in red. See more »

Interesting film with some really thoughtful details and noirish elements. The camera work was especially arresting with liberal facial close-ups and scenery that reminded me of "The Third Man". The story is interesting enough to keep the viewer occupied although the dialog dubbed from German to English was quite distracting. It would have been better to release it with subtitles. Part of its appeal was the diversity of the characters and the fact that the outcome was truly unexpected. It kept me guessing all the way up to the end like all good thrillers. On the negative side it dragged at times and some of the scenes, especially some with the Inspector's sidekick, seemed to have been inserted as fillers. Overall though I was pleasantly surprised.
