Typical Edgar Wallace
24 April 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Edgar Wallace was profligate writer.He often used situations such as featured in this film,where it was difficult to work out how the murder was committed.Bernard Lee is as reliable as ever as the dogged Scotland Yard detective.The mystery is well played out till near the end.Unfortunately the disguise of one character is so poor it virtually points the finger at him
