Notes: 
A bit of a disappointment, this Kinowelt DVD, after having seen the beautiful transfers of two other Edgar Wallace krimis - "Das Geheimnis der gelben Narzissen" & "Die toten Augen von London" - done by Universum. The main problem I see here is the strange AR of 1.50:1, which seems to be wrong, especially in comparison with the included theatrical trailer framed at a pleasing 1.67:1:

38153 / 1318 | 130251 / 2683

While comparing the main feature with the trailer, I found a couple of other interesting things. These might be of no importance whatsoever, but I'm going to mention them anyway. ;-) First, there are scenes in the trailer that use shots different from the ones used in the film:

756 / 3492 | 86783 / 937 | 117584 / 1900 | 130626 / 665

And second, there are scenes / parts of scenes that are not used in the film at all:

518 | 870
