Double Face (A doppia faccia)
Double Face (Italian title A doppia faccia; German title Das Gesicht im Dunkeln ("The face in the darkness"); also released in English as Puzzle of Horrors) is a 1969 Italian-German thriller directed by Riccardo Freda (credited as Robert Hampton). Helen Alexander (Margaret Lee) dies in a car incident after the conflict with her husband John (Klaus Kinski) due to Helen's affair with another woman, Liz (Annabella Incontrera). John inherits Helen's share in her family business, becoming very rich. Both police and Helen's stepfather Mr. Brown (Sydney Chaplin) suspect that John stands behind the deadly incident. Meanwhile, John meets a certain Christine (Christiane Krüger), who lets him know that his wife may be alive.
The film is released as the 29th installment in the Rialto Film studio film series (1959-1972) adapted from the works of Edgar Wallace. In Germany, the film was promoted as being based on Wallace's novel "The Face in the Night" but in fact the script had nothing to do with the book. Italian release doesn't even mention the name of Edgar Wallace.
