Comments

Volume 4 of Edgar Wallace Mystery series continues with 7 more films produced by Jack Greenwood and Merton Park Studios and an extra film HOUSE OF MYSTERY produced by Julian Wintle and Leslie Parkyn for Independent Artists on 3 dual-layered discs. LOCKER SIXTY NINE is the usual noir story of a private detective being knocked unconscious after he discovers a body in a pool of blood, and missing that body after he regains consciousness. THE SET UP has a businessman tricking an ex-con to burglarize his own safe, but instead sets him up for a murder. ON THE RUN is another noirish story of a bank robber escaping prison to keep his accomplice from getting his hands on all of the loot.

The StudioCanal logo starts off each film. The films are progressively
transferred in theatrical aspect ratio of 1.65:1. The anamorphic
transfers looks excellent, with strong contrast and very minimal
damage on the prints. Some films suffer from poor soundtrack and this is where the optional English subtitles would have helped. The extras on the third disc include an image gallery, pdf promotional materials and an extra feature - HOUSE OF MYSTERY directed by Vernon Sewell from the French play by Pierre Mills and Celia de Vilyars L'Angoisse. This is the 4th adaptation by Vernon Sewell of this play - short The Medium (1934), Latin Quarter (1945) and Ghost Ship (1952) came before it. A 12-page booklet with notes on each film and insightful essays on the series by Kim Newman rounds off each volume. Discs are labeled as region 2, but are actually region free.
