Dead eyes of London( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When movie audiences caught this double bill in the mid-'60s, they were doubtless unaware that they were witnessing remarkable entries in the Italian gothic and German "krimi" genres. Based on a story by the legendary Edgar Wallace, "Dead Eyes of London" is filled with stylistic flourishes which would influence such directors as Dario Argento. Klaus Kinski stars in this chilling yarn about a series of perplexing murders involving wealthy, middle-aged men and a sinister sect of blind London residents with a grisly secret. Scotland Yard is baffled, but soon the ghastly truth is revealed! Then scream legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday) stars in The Ghost, a marvelous, atmospheric shocker from acclaimed director Riccardo Freda (The Horrible Dr. Hichcock). Stuck in an unhappy marriage with a wheelchair-bound, occult-worshipping husband, Margaret begins an affair with the handsome family doctor and concocts a murderous scheme that turns into full-blown terror!

Zum letzten Mal sehen Anna und Otto Quangel ihren einzigen Sohn, als er 1940 einberufen wird. Kurz darauf fällt Otti "für Führer, Volk und Vaterland". Für das Ehepaar bricht eine Welt zusammen; Phrasen vom Heldentod für den Führer bieten keinen Trost. Anna beginnt anonyme Feldpostkarten mit den Worten "Der Führer hat mir meinen Sohn ermordet" zu verteilen. So hofft sie, die Menschen wachzurütteln. Doch vor allem setzt sie die Überwachungsmaschinerie des Nazistaates in Gang. Schon bald ist ihnen die Gestapo auf den Fersen und sie gehören zu den meistgesuchten Verbrechern des Vaterlandes... Ambitionierte Literaturverfilmung und ein Stück deutscher Geschichte: Hans Fallada verfasste den Roman kurz vor seinem Tod im Jahre 1946, basierend auf Gestapo-Akten. Das Vermächtnis eines grossen deutschen Schriftstellers. (Quelle: Umschlag)
