A man is found dead in a London hotel. The knife is still stuck in the victim's chest, and Inspector Perkins strangely finds a glass eye in his jacket pocket. Shortly afterwards, a second mysterious murder occurs: a well-known dancer of the Las Vegas Girls, who perform in London's Odeon Theater, is poisoned. Is there a connection between the pretty dancer and the hotel guest? Inspector Perkins and his colleagues are pressed for time. The "man with the glass eye" strikes fatally again and again.Written by

An Edgar Wallace episode filmed in colour though not overwhelmingly colourful, this film is impressive rather because of its charming touch of humour than creepy thrill. Stefan Behrens, who plays young Sergeant Pepper has a voice as annyoing as some bad German dubber of Jerry Lewis characters, but he has the potential to be funnier than all the guys played by Eddi Arent.
