Trivia

Though not an adaption of original material by Edgar Wallace, this film was advertised in Germany as part of the famous Edgar Wallace Series. It was such a huge flop that the Producers at Rialto Film decided to delay any future plans to do further Edgar Wallace Films. Due to the great success of Dario Argento's "L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo" (1969) which was advertised as an adaption of a story by Wallace's son Bryan Edgar, Rialto's series re-started in 1971.

Kinski and Margaret Lee together again
4 July 2016 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

The film has something in common with "Blowup" (1966) directed by Michelangelo Antonioni but is much lower in all respects. The only thing of value is Klaus Kinski's performance. The son of the great Chaplin, Sydney Chaplin, was never a great actor. The other performers, Christiane Krüger, Günther Stoll, Annabella Incontrera, Barbara Nelli, they are just OK. Margaret Lee appears too little, she has just a small role. The whole film is predictable and boring. This is not the best film by Riccardo Freda. I think he was aware too of the "value" of his latest movies, that's why he signed with pseudonyms, Robert Hampton, George Lincoln or Willy Pareto.
