Unmasking the Hexer, who has been wearing Inspector Warren's face maybe all along. Sans the often grating, goofy tone. It remains a bit weird to see all of these German movies, based on Edgar Wallace his novels, which are set in London and features some all-British characters, with all-British names.

Nothing is ever certain in a krimi, and our magical, eponymous entity is no different. . It's a movie made purely for entertainment and it's being a quite silly one with its story and somewhat quirky characters just like a James Bond movie. This is because we get both Joachim Fuchsberger and Heinz Drache in the same movie, on the same screen, shadowing each other through the story as dueling detectives after the same elusive phantom Der Hexer, the Mysterious Magician, the master of disguise who has returned from a self-imposed exile in Australia to avenge his sister's death.

Not the greatest but still a enjoyable enough, short watch. The original Fuchsberger, left meets the copy Drache, right. It was part of a based on the writings of and adapted from the 1925 novel titled The Ringer originally: The Gaunt Stranger. The cops and villains are all there, but the very presence of our title character brings everything else into question.
