"Edgar Wallace" by Tobias Hohmann

As a Eurocult fan I often dream about the perfect book regarding my passion! Once in a decade that book does come along and you've got to have it no matter what price! In the last decade it was Tim Lucas' opus maximus about Italian movie maestro "Mario Bava". Although this decade is still young it will probably be the book about "Edgar Wallace" written by German author Tobias Hohmann. This book has it all about the German movies based on the crime novels of British writer "Edgar Wallace" and those by his son "Bryan Edgar Wallace"! The book clocks at a whopping 866 pages full of... well, everything you ever wanted to know and see about these German cult movies of the 60's and early 70's. The next examples of pages should give you quite a good idea what I am talking about. And when you know that some of the movie memorabelia have been given for this book by some very die hard German fans you know that you are going to see many items never been seen since the release of the movies so many years ago!And of course, the fact that Marisa Mell appeared in two movies of the series "Das Rätsel der roten Orchidee" and "Das Rätsel des Silbernen Halbmonds" is the icing on the cake!Thanks to Holger Haase for pointing this one out! Holger has a phantastic blog about the Edgar Wallace-movies:

Haha, you put me to shame with the reference to the blog that I hardly ever update. I can't wait to get my hands on this book. So far I have book 1 (Mabuse) and 3 (Miss Marple) of the series. I'll probably get the Edgar Wallace book when I am back in Germany next week.

I have just ordered the book and the other two i.c. Mabuse and Marple will be ordered in the next weeks! BTW if you order the book Wallace from it is about 10 EURO cheaper than ordering it from Don't you love the free market?
