A luminary cast features in this classy adaptation of Edgar Wallace's thriller - the best-known and most widely adapted play by the celebrated British crime/suspense writer. Marking the directorial debut of Guy Hamilton, later to direct a string of iconic James Bond films, The Ringer is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
The Ringer is an elusive criminal, reported dead in Australia but now thought to be alive in London. Scotland Yard, knowing the Ringer had left his sister in the care of unscrupulous lawyer Maurice Meister and that she had later been found drowned, warn Meister that the Ringer is in London. A police guard is set up around Meister's house and, surrounded by burglar alarms, he waits for further news; no intruder could possibly enter. As tension mounts, it seems increasingly clear that the Ringer is one of the people in the close circle around Meister... but which one?
Actors Herbert Lom, Mai Zetterling & Denholm Elliot
