Movie Info

The German The Squeaker is the third film version of the Edgar Wallace mystery novel of the same name. The title character is an omnipotent "fence" who has cornered the diamond-smuggling racket. The fence travels in polite society under the guise of a wealthy philanthropist. A Scotland Yard detective pretends to be an ex-convict in order to infiltrate the Squeaker's gang and to track down the stolen gems. The Squeaker was one of several German Edgar Wallace adaptations of the 1960s, ground out simultaneously with Britain's long-running Wallace B-picture series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Der Zinker (The Squeaker)

All Critics (1)

The B-film reminded me of one of those admirable Sherlock Holmes stories they used to show on late-night TV, especially the ones starring Basil Rathbone.
