Q
Film or TV series?
A
Originally released as a second feature film series in the UK it was quickly snapped up by television and shown on Australian, UK TV and others from the 1960s on.Perfectionists often complain about this IMDB title but it was an attempt to bring the series together in chronological order. For the complainers IMDB now lists the films as separate features in their own right where running times may be slightly higher as the television version was often edited to fit an hour slot.
Q
Did The Group 'The Shadows' Record the Theme Tune
A
Yes they did, it was a top ten hit called 'Man Of Mystery'. However this was not the version used in the series as is widely thought today. The several versions used in the series were created by the show's musical team.According to an original flyer I have for "attempt to Kill" - "Man Of Mystery" title music to the Edgar Wallace series is Published by B.Feldman & Co and recorded on Columbia by The Shadows record no 45 DB4530
Q
Was Edgar Wallace popular in Germany?
A
Yes, Edgar Wallace novels were popular. A film series was made in Germany starting with "Der Frosch mit der Maske" (1959). However these have no connection at all with the British made series of the same name.
