Edgar Wallace series running out of steam
31 March 1999 | by SMK-4See all my reviews

By 1966 the German series of Edgar Wallace films was running out of steam. There were preciously few new ideas ("make it in colour" isn't enough), so we have the usual good vs. evil battle, with some damsels in distress thrown in for good measure. An unusual twist, for the followers of the series, is that some of the regular comic-relief actors (Arent, Windeck, v. Meyerinck) are this time on the sinister side of things. This didn't work very well though - they make thoroughly unconvincing villains.
