Not very electrifying
29 July 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Some of the Edgar Wallace films were not based on Wallace stories.This film is a case in point.It has none of the elements associated with a Wallace story,apart from which it is for the most part dull and slow.It is only in the last five minutes that the tension really increases.The film is not helped by the truly awful French accent used by John Carson.The plot strains credibility to breaking point.Not one of the better efforts
