4.0 out of 5 stars TAILING OFF, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edgar Wallace Mysteries - Volume 7 [DVD] (DVD)
The difference between the early Merton Park Wallace's (The Clue Of The Twisted Candle, The Man Who Was Nobody etc) and these 1964/5 productions is very noticeable. the earlier ones featured several "locked room" mysteries, which would appeal to the lovers of both Wallace and E. Philips Oppenheim's books, and feature some marvellous beauties of the cinema of the time in the UK, like Maxine Audley and Hazel Court, and some great actors like Bernard Lee and Alfred Burke.

The later ones are rather more "psychological" - there are future TV stars like John Thaw,and good as they are, some of them feel rather plodding.

The highlight for me is the extra none-Merton Park film "Seven Keys" - a really pacy little thriller which seem more like the earlier Edgar Wallace's. The 4 stars are for Seven Keys - if it were just the final EWs I would have given three.

But, that said, thank goodness one company had the courage to issue these little gems (and Scotland Yard) which would otherwise be forgotten - no room on terrestrial TV these days for black and white - even afternoons or late nights - only "reality" (scripted) shows and other rubbish in colour!
