The only double the producers could find for Sir Christopher Lee was the circus' real lion tamer, who Lee described as being "half my height". In order to make the situation credible, 6'4" tall Lee was shot in close-up, so the height differential would not be too obvious to the audience. According to Lee, he wore a black mask through nine-tenths of the movie anyway. See more »

This movie has more title changes than evilskip's shorts. Psycho Circus, Circus Of Fear etc.It isn't a horror movie but it is a crime movie and I might add it is a crime what has been done to this movie.It may or not be based somewhat loosely on an Edgar Wallace thriller.
A robbery goes awry leading to murder,double crossings, mistaken identities, blackmail and revenge.You've got a great cast, an involving plot and...video distributors that butchered the film.There is at least one reel missing from this print that has some important exposition.Not to mention 15 minutes as well.This print only runs 74 minutes.
I would love to see the complete film.In the meantime this one will have to do.
