This one fell off my hunt list and ended up on my “ones that got away” list some time ago, so I’m glad it turned up. However, the only copy I could find was dubbed into Italian and has no English subtitles. Furthermore, this is a fairly talky movie, and this makes it very difficult to follow for me due to the language barrier. I don’t know how interesting the talk is, but from the way it looks now, it seems to be a dull little movie with very little action and only slight fantastic content with the mass-murdering Crippen, and he really doesn’t appear until the end of the movie. Still, I’m glad to be able to check this one off the list.
