This is a film Mr. Lee made before he was a star. In 1956, I think. So it was a year before Frankenstein. He's quite good in it but the film isn't all that good. Betta St. John is also in it. She would later star with Lee in "City of the Dead/Horror Hotel" and "Corridors of Blood". I bought a dvd recently online.

Hi George,
Unfortunatly I have never seen this film...it has certainly been released in France but not for a long time...if you have details about the DVD issue you can reply....some of Lee's films in the past, the 50', are very interesting to watch even if Lee does not play the main role..or just a little part....other films would deserve to be seen once again, in this period, I think about such titles like "Beyond Monbassa" , "Port Afrique" and "She played with fire" to mention some releases just before Hammer, and not very well known by the public...they were not horror movies at all, but are still very pleasant ..with the taste of the "oldies".and the "black and white".......I think George you just agree with this point of wiew. The DVD volume 1 "The Making of the Legend" give us some details about those films , previous Hammer, that's a good thing indeed, with precious and interesting comments by Lee himself, meanwhile it give us not a complete wiew about all those old films, some of them forgotten now days, he made during the 50 at the beguining of his long career... Best regards from
Georges Nahon, from France.
