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 series being The Edgar Wallace Mysteries, 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 third volume includes top-notch performances from Michael Caine, Barry Foster, Michael Gough, Bernard Lee, Jack Watling and Michael Goodliffe, and features scripts by Philip Mackie, Robert Banks Stewart and Lukas Heller.
