Product Description

Product Description

Boris Karloff (with a distinguished-looking black eye patch and cloak) stars as Colonel March, the head of the Department of Queer Complaints at Scotland Yard. It is his job to investigate any unusual cases that are beyond the realm of routine criminal activities. Three investigations require the brilliant and insightful mind of Colonel March: a bank robbery for which an innocent man was framed; the murder of a Japanese dancer; and a house haunted by a pair of murderous gloves!

Originally released in 1952, this British murder mystery, based on the stories by Carter Dickson, is directed by Cy Endfield (Zulu; Zulu Dawn).

A lovely old crime movie starring dear old Boris Karloff. Amusingly done and featuring an unusual role for the usually urbane Richard Wattis and an early appearance of Joan Sims. Also starring Anthony Forwood, the 'friend' of Dirk Bogarde for the rest of his life.

Contrary to the previous review , this is not intended to be the TV series.It is 3 episodes of the series stitched together to make up a film for cinema release. It actually played in cinemas prior to the TV series being screened.

As far as the complete series being released, not likely to happen. Only 12 episodes still exist in the UK vaults.
The complete run does exist in the US but would require extensive restoration work to bring them up to some sort of acceptable standard for DVD release, not to mention 'rights' clearance. Unlikely any company would want to make the sort of investment needed for an old series of such limited appeal.

I haven't yet seen this particular release but I have seen the episodes it is comprised of recently.They are pretty clunky and very low budget. Karloff stands out though & if you like old 'B' (very 'B'in this case )movies ,or remember the series with affection you'll probably enjoy it.

I can just about remember this series when it played on ITV in the late 1950's, one with with the 'Abominable Snowman' in no less (!) and then they had a certain charm about them then but while I am not panicking to see this item yet, I will in due course just for old times sake. For what it is worth, in the not too distant past I read somewhere that a load of these films, from the original 25 mins long films, being 25 mins long was allowing a few mins for the adverts half way through as it was ITV!, had been 'dumped' in the Thames when a film distributors premises were sold off or some such story which seems a shame as I think they would be worth a look. On another 'old time' theme, anybody know if the 'OSS', the WW2 undercover series starring Ron Randell and Lionel Murton as his CO and another chap with glasses in the role of 'Sgt, O'Brien' the 'Q' of his day with his box of gadgets for use in the field (and I don't mean spades and forks..), is kicking about anywhere?. As I recall, it went out on ITV in an half an hour slot on a Sunday night, possibly 9-30?. I tend to think a few films do exist as a friend said he nearly went to see them at the BFI when they featured on a film night, but he was a bit vague at the time... Sorry, but I am no good at Lotto numbers but have a vague idea about old telly series as I saw the stuff when it went out at the time - should have got out more perhaps! :)
