Teresa Gimpera and Silvana Venturelli in Rare Spanish Thriller

also known as INVISIBLE ASSASSIN and SHADOW OF DEATH and MACABRE

director: Xavier Seto (as Xavier Seto Casanova)
starring: Larry Ward Teresa Gimpera Giacomo Rossi-Stuart Fernando Sanchez-Polack

Initially, the plot appears to be a simple case of blackmail, but the unlucky blackmailer discovers his intended target is actually the wrong man, the identical twin brother of the target, a crooked pharmacist who is having an affair with his brother's wife. The adulterous pair - realizing they have happened upon a good thing - recruit the blackmailer into a scheme to drive their brother/husband insane. This involves (among other things) the twin pretending to be his brother and picking up and sexually abusing a streetwalker (played by the gorgeous Silvana Venturelli).

Spanish director Xavier Seto made 25+ films, starting in 1952 and ending with this movie in '69. He died in an automobile accident at age 43 a few months after its release. Lead performer Larry Ward was an American actor who specialized in character roles for U.S. television productions - appearing in over 50 shows including Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, 77 Sunset Strip and The Fugitive - before finding a more lucrative career starring in European films. He eventually made Hollywood is home in the late Seventies, again returning to TV work (especially notable for his role of General Rothaker in the M*A*S*H series). Mr Ward died from cancer at age 60 in February 1985.
