Again the Ringer (Neues vom Hexer ("News from The Warlock")) is a 1965 German detective movie directed by Alfred Vohrer, a sequel for 1964 The Ringer. The plot is not adapted from an Edgar Wallace's novel but rather based on the characters and storylines from the collection of short stories "Again the Ringer" (1929). Arthur Milton known as "The Warlock" ("The Ringer" in the Wallace's works) who had escaped from police in the final of The Ringer appears again. Now he has to free himself from suspicion of murder of wealthy Lord Curtain. Inspector Wesby has to team with "The Warlock" in order to investigate the case.

The film is the nineteenth installment in the Rialto Film studio film series (1959-1972) based on the works of Edgar Wallace.

Reck P6S

Margie Fielding (Barbara Rütting) owns a pocket pistol that turns out to be a blank-firing Reck P6S. Lord Curtain's butler Edwards (Klaus Kinski) holds same looking pistol, fitted with the adapter for launching the signal flares in the "role" of a sound suppressor. The usage of this adapter allows to identify the pistol as P6S rather than gas-firing P6 that lack the screw for this adapter.
