The thrillers of Edgar Wallace – one of the twentieth century’s most successful crime novelists – have been widely adapted for film and television, with the most memorable adaptation being 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. Transferred from the original film elements, all 47 films are included in this anthology set alongside a wealth of special features.

SPECIAL FEATURES

[] Seven films made by Independent Artists Ltd during the same period as the Merton Park films – two of which were from Wallace stories
[] Exclusive booklet by author and critic Kim Newman
[] Image galleries
[] PDF material
