A terrific 1960 film directed by Fritz Lang, one of the greatest directors in the history of film.

Gert Frobe, best known for his role as the notorious Goldfinger in the debut movie of the James Bond series, plays inspector Kras - the quintessential cop seeking to solve this complex case, delivering a terrific performance. Also excellent is Dawn Adams as Marion Menil, the troubled battered wife to the mysterious club footed man.

It was Lang's last film. If you like Alfred Hitchcock psycho thrillers like Vertigo and Rear Window, you'll love this movie.
