Edward J. and Harry Lee Danziger, producers extraordinaire - Native New Yorkers, they set up shop in Britain in 1952 and, for a decade, became arguably the world's most prolific independent supplier of television shows and 'B' movies, creating nearly 100 films and in excess of 300 TV episodes for the British and American market. Their longest-running creation was one-armed detective Mark Saber, who sleuthed his way through more than 150 episodes of murder, blackmail and conduct unbecoming!

Though the first series of The Vise successfully achieved an American network transmission, for the second run The Danzigers rebooted the format. Gone was the narrator and rotating cast, to be replaced by the stand-up private investigator Mark Saber, memorably played by Donald Gray.

With a rotating cast of assistants and inspectors, Saber foiled criminals over 65 episodes (with a little bit of help from writer Brian Clemens, amongst others) and this volume showcases thirty episodes from the second series of The Vise (known as Mark Saber in the UK and to posterity as The Vise: Mark Saber) - unseen for over fifty years they have been newly transferred from original film elements especially for this release!
