Again the Ringer (Neues vom Hexer)
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.
The following weapons were used in the film Again the Ringer (Neues vom Hexer):
Inspector James W. Wesby (Heinz Drache), Arthur Milton alias "The Warlock" (René Deltgen), his butler Archibald Finch (Eddi Arent), Lord Curtain's nephew Archie Moore (Robert Hoffmann), and the villain's henchmen Lanny (Kurt Waitzmann) and Marshall (Michael Chevalier) use Arminius HW-1 revolvers in various scenes.
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.
