TOP 500 REVIEWERon 10 November 2017
I'm a big fan of Boris Karloff (that voice!), so I thoroughly enjoyed these three episodes of a 1955 TV series woven together into a film. Clunky and creaky, with a just about passable black and white print, it's none the less very entertaining, with a great line-up of supporting actors, including the wonderfully lugubrious Richard Wattis, Joan Sims and a very brief appearance by Marianne Stone. My favourite of the three stories features handsome couple Anthony Forwood and Patricia Owens in a daft but intriguing tale of a house haunted by a pair of murderous gloves. Forwood became the long-term partner of Dirk Bogarde, having previously been married to Glynnis Johns and Owens went on to brief Hollywood fame, playing opposite big stars like Ray Milland and Audie Murphy. Good sound quality, but no subtitles. 70 minutes. Great value for well under a fiver (look carefully at the buying options.)

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.

I really enjoyed this DVD, but am not yet able to find any more of this intriguing series. Will snap it up when I do.

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.
