All seven volumes of The Edgar Wallace Mysteries will be available from 4 November as a 20-disc box set – THE EDGAR WALLACE ANTHOLOGY (12), courtesy of Network Distributing, RRP £129.99. 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 series, made at Merton Park Studios during the first half of the 1960s.
A noir-esque series, the films update some of the author’s stories to more contemporary settings, blending classic B-movie elements with a distinctly British feel. Unseen for decades before their Network releases and freshly transferred from the original film elements, all 47 films are included in this Anthology set alongside a wealth of special features.
