Sorry, wrong Edgar
12 March 2020 | by wilvramSee all my reviews

This 'Edgar Wallace' mystery is in fact based on the 1952 novel of the same name by Edgar Lustgarten, who despite making two separate series for the same studio doesn't receive a credit. All the more surprising as the plot follows closely that of the book, with much of the dialogue retained verbatim.

The story of a wealthy man of influence blackmailed over alleged unwarranted intimacies with his secretary might have seemed passé in 1965 and for a long time later, but has renewed relevancy in the current political climate. Despite an intriguing story and characters and some good acting, with Allan Cuthbertson at his supercilious best in a cameo as defending barrister, it all somehow doesn't add up to more than an average entry in this Merton Park series.
