A very poorly produced set with print quality varying from title to title. This is the only way at present to obatin any of this excellent series so I suppose you have to take what you can get. The series ran from 1960 to 1966 on ABC cinemas forming the second half of a two feature bill. They starred many youing actors who would later find stardom, like John Thaw. The familiar opening shot of a bust of Wallace turning slowly behind the credits as the famous tune, Man Of Mystery plays became iconic at the time and was recorded by The Shadows in 1960. This version went on to replace the original recording on subsequent releases. There are eleven titles in this six disc series:- The Verdict '64, We Shall See '64, Who Was Maddox '64, Act Of Murder '63, Face Of A Stranger '64, Never Mention Murder '64, The Main Chance '64, Game For Three Losers '64, Change Partners '65, Strangler's Web '64 and Dead Man's Chest '65.

The quality ranges from poor to average - most of the films are transfers from VHS, taped from british tv broadcasts. It beggars belief that the owners of the rights don't just license this out legitimately instead of letting certain people make a fortune selling this shoddy bootleg collection for a hundred pounds. While they are at it, someone should remaster Scotland Yard and Scales of Justice too! Alas, until they are officially released, this is the only way to see these classic films then all you can do is pay up or wait for some kind soul to 'liberate' them. Hence the three stars. The content is brilliant of course, but the quality is very poor.
