Edgar Wallace Mysteries: Volume 5
The thrillers of Edgar Wallace, one of the twentieth century’s most successful crime novelists, have been widely adapted for film and television – the most memorable of which 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. Unseen for decades, these dramas have been freshly transferred from the original film elements specifically for this release.
This fifth volume includes top-notch performances from Patrick Magee, Alan MacNaughtan, Katharine Blake, Nigel Stock and John Thaw, and features scripts by Roger Marshall, Jimmy Sangster and novelist Arthur La Bern.
 The Man in the Back Seat – an Edgar Wallace thriller made by Independent Artists Ltd during the same period as the Merton Park films
