The Forger of London (Der Fälscher von London) is a 1961 German detective movie directed by Harald Reinl and adapted from the 1927 novel "The Forger" by Edgar Wallace. Jane Clifton (Karin Dor), the newly married wife of a wealthy playboy, suspects that her husband Peter (Hellmut Lange) is connected with counterfeiters. Meanwhile Peter Clifton turns out to be mentally ill... or at least his doctor claims so.

The film is the seventh installment in the Rialto Film studio film series (1959-1972) adapted from the novels of Edgar Wallace.


The following weapons were used in the film The Forger of London (Der Fälscher von London):
