    The thrillers of Edgar Wallace, one of the twentieth century’s most successful crime novelists, have been widely adapted for fi lm and television – the most memorable of which is the Edgar Wallace Mysteries, made at Merton Park Studios in the first half of the 1960s. A noir-esque series, it updates some of the author’s stories to more contemporary settings, blending classic B-movie elements with a distinctly British feel. Unseen for decades and freshly transferred from the original film elements specifically for this release, all 47 films will be released over seven volumes on DVD.

    This first volume includes top-notch performances from Bernard Lee, Harry H. Corbett, Hazel Court, Paul Eddington and Conrad Phillips, and features scripts by Philip Mackie and Robert Banks Stewart.

    Special Features:
    [] Urge to Kill – a non-Wallace story that was included in syndication packages as an Edgar Wallace Mystery
    [] October Moth – one of seven thrillers made by Independent Artists Ltd in the same period as the Merton Park films – two of which were from Wallace stories
    [] Exclusive booklet by author and critic Kim Newman
    [] Image gallery
    [] PDF material
