Quelques mots à propos de ce film qui est un "Edgar Wallace" allemand mais d'une série concurrente… demain. Là, chuis fatigué.

est un film de Werner Klingler avec Joachim Hansen dans le rôle de l'inspecteur qui mène l'enquête, et Senta Berger dans celui de la jolie blonde. On a aussi quelques autres comparses, assez peu remarquables, si ce n'est l'agaçant Chris Howland.

Attention ! Ce fim ne relève pas du canon Edgar-Wallace-Filme (1959-1972) auquel ressortissait, par exemple, Der Rote Kreis, mais d'un cycle parallèle et concurrent produit par la CCC et construit sur les romans ou scénarios originaux de Bryan Edgar Wallace, le fils d'Edgar Wallace, série plus brève dont parle aussi de.wiki qui consacre d'ailleurs un énorme article au film qui nous occupe présentement (là dis donc).

Ben, du coup, le boulot est fait, je ne vois pas pourquoi je m'échinerais plus. Si ce n'est pour dire que j'ai trouvé les scènes fort mal éclairées, et l'histoire un tout petit peu chiante, quoique non dépourvue d'un juvénile et désuet parfum d'aventures d'autrefois. Mais hier, je n'étais pas d'humeur à goûter ça, d'autant que c'est très bavard.

Seen the succes of the Edgar-Wallace-Filme (1959-1972), there was pretty soon a parallel cycle to be launched by CCC, concurrent to Rialto Film. Ours is the first movie of this serial. The screenplays were Bryan Edgar Wallace's works, the son of Edgar Wallace. And the results, as far as I can judge (which is not very far since I saw only one of each series), is, well, not very different. I nonetheless was stricken by some technical flaws (especially the lighting, very as-poor-as-on-TV).

99% of the footage was made in Berlin (as you can figure after reading this excerpt of an over-long de.wiki article devoted to a film which hardly deserved such an extended space), albeit we find, apart the opening credit sequence, a tracking shot on some London embankment,

with British cars.

was at that time not better an actress than Renate Ewert.

I didn't like much the movie, but some IMDb reviewers found entertainment in it.

I quote: "..was at that time not better an actress than Renate Ewert." :D It was about time you continued your Renate Ewert-bashing. Still, maybe we should be a bit more forgiving with her. AFAIK, she met quite a miserable, tragic end.

"Continue [my] Renate Ewert-bashing"? Did I speak of Miss Ewert more than twice, including the one line you quote? Actually, I only remember her in Der Rote Kreis. (I checked… No, not even in Angélique, probably seen a long time ago, and forgotten since, though the movie has many followers still today.)

But since you raised my (nasty) curiosity, I found about her ending: http://www.glamourgirlsofthesilverscreen.com/show/85/Renate+Ewert/index.html=The

Well… I want to state publicly and clearly that I'm in no way, even remotely, linked to, not to say involved in, any part of the destiny of Miss Ewert.

I believe it. My comment wasn't meant that seriously. Actually, I always enjoy reading your brief reviews that you usually post each time you have completed a movie. For instance, I almost died laughing when I read your comments about Kim Novak and Kirk Douglas a couple of months ago and I actually had never heard about R. Ewert until I read your comment on the page of "Der rote Kreis". This made me curious, so I went on Wikpedia to have a look.

But think to my reputation here if you make me pass for King Basher Ist —which is by no mean what I'm aiming for. (Edit: Oh… there could be a smiley here, would I use them.)

I enjoy watching movies, masterpieces, good movies, not-so-good movies, turkeys, ice-cold dead turkeys. The fact is that it's rather difficult to say something about movies you didn't enjoy—the least to do is to try to find out why you didn't enjoy them. Sometimes, it's because the musical score, sometimes the story developpement, sometimes the filming, the editing, the images, more times it's because a mix of these reasons. And many times, maybe because it seems to be the most easy reason to reach to, it is because the acting. But the most difficult, once this found, is to say it. Even more, to say it in a language which is not yours. Look at what happened to my comment on Novak/Douglas couple in Strangers When We Meet… It actually shied me away of writing reviews in English.

Well, after all, I should just keep notice that some other one (I mean: not only me) is reading what I'm writing on the movies I watch, and it is not bad to know.

@DidierF: Then I'm really sorry and want to apologize because I really did not want you to become insecure about writing reviews in English. I often experience the same things when I have to express myself in a foreign language like English. But since my French is much worse, almost non-existent, there`s no other way left.

Nah, cl82, please do not apologize. No harm, really.
(I've a little bunch of German films —from 1947 to 1970— to up-load, they're coming pretty soon, stay tuned!)
