    This was a well-worth watching suspenseful movie.Happened on it by accident,and what a happy accident.Was unsure who the headless man was and a little surprised when revealed,but good acting,fine plot.Loved the nearly unfortunate Redmond,made my blood boil the shabby way the villagers treated him,except Letty.

    I thought it was a great movie. Maybe it was a little campy, but it had great atmosphere, and I would love to see it on dvd. It was a real good vs evil story, bravery over cowardice.

  • Raising Their Spirits

    This is an excellent example of the sort of films that are mass produced during wartime. It is intended to raise the spirits of the viewers. You'd have to be pretty miserable to be raised by this one.The Mysterious Doctor was made on a tight budget. About enough to buy a sandwich and coffee by the look of it. The headless ghost costume, which includes a torso nearly twice as long as the ghost's legs is a good example. John Loder plays the knighted aristocrat who, despite three generations removal, feels more loyalty to "our beloved Feurer" than his home land.The young soldier leading man, who apparently received police powers along with his uniform, can't even put his uniform cap on straight. His complete lack of facial expression is disconcerting, but at least he has all the words in the right order.The worst of it is that the individual who in fact is the mysterious doctor turns out to be a mining engineer sent by the government to look for tin in the old mine. Why he has to sneak around at night while on a legitimate mission in his own country is never actually explained. Fortunately the landlord of the Running Horse Inn, who has to wear a hood because of his facial disfigurement, is polite enough to be killed early on so that the mysterious doctor can take his place. Naturally the landlord's clothes, and hood, fit the doctor perfectly. Aided by an uncanny ability to imitate the landlord's voice the mysterious doctor completes his mission; at which point all the men in the little town can immediately go back to mining because they've all jobless for years.It's pretty bad...but a pretty good example of what war does for the cinema.
