Edgar Wallace Mysteries - Volume 4 DVD

| DVD

One of the twentieth century's most successful crime novelists, Edgar Wallace's thrillers have been widely adapted for film and television - the most memorable of which are the Edgar Wallace Mysteries series, made at Merton Park Studios during the first half of the 1960s. A noir-esque series, it updates some of the author's stories to more contemporary settings, blending classic B-movie elements with a distinctly British feel. Unseen for decades and freshly transferred from the original film elements specifically for this release, all 47 films will be released over... seven volumes on DVD. This fourth volume includes top-notch performances from Alfred Burke, Barbara Shelley, Paul Daneman, Anton Diffring and Dawn Addams, and features scripts by Philip Mackie (The Naked Civil Servant), Roger Marshall (The Sweeney, Public Eye) and Richard Harris (The Darling Buds of May). Special Features: House of Mystery - A thriller made by Independant Artists Ltd during the same period as the Merton Park films Exclusive booket by author and critic Kim Newman Image Gallery PDF Material [show more]
