One of the twentieth century's most successful crime novelists, Edgar Wallace's thrillers have been widely adapted for film and television - the most memorable of which are the Edgar Wallace Mysteries, made at Merton Park Studios during 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, all 47 films are included in this Anthology set alongside a wealth of special features.
Urge To Kill - a non-Wallace story that was included in syndication packages as an Edgar Wallace Mystery
Seven films made by Independent Artists Ltd during the same period as the Merton Park films - two of which were from Wallace stories
Exclusive booklets by author and critic Kim Newman
