The Green Archer is a 1961 German movie directed by Jürgen Roland and is the second one of the series. The American millionaire Abel Bellamy moves into his castle, Garre Castle near London, although he knows that the spirit of a green archer is up to mischief. It does not take long for the first casualties to be mourned. Inspector Featherstone of Scotland Yard can be smuggled into the property as a caretaker so that he can investigate undisturbed. But Bellamy's pretty niece Valerie is also investigated because she has a bad suspicion.
