Mystery MYSTERY OF THE GREEN SPIDER—Anamorphic Widescreen

(1960, Anamorphic Widescreen) Adrian Hoven, Renate Ewert, Hans von Borsody, Jochen Brockmann, Bill Ramsey.  This cool Krimi offering is available with English subtitles for the first time.  Inside a smoky nightclub called “the Green Spider” a beautiful singer finishes her song, then the band takes over, playing a raucous jazzy tune.  Lost in all the noise is the sound of a gunshot.  Moments later the singer is found in her dressing room—dead!  Clues between piling up (along wih an extra body or two) between all the cool music numbers.  Hoven and the police navigate many twists and turns, trying to track down the killer.  This obscure Krimi entry plays very much like the an early '60s German Edgar Wallace film and if you're a fan of this genre you'll really want to check it out.  The "twist" at the end is really a hoot, albeit implausible.  Lot's of fun, though, with the entire cast turning in solid performances.  Brockmann is especially good as the hard-headed Inspector Bock and Ramsey has some great scene-stealing moments as a drunken American who's obviously styled (at least to a certain degree) after the Big Bopper.  They don't get much prettier than Renate Ewert. Really cool opening titles.  Cool.  Shown in its original 1:66 anamorphic format.  From 35mm.
