Devil Doll 1964
American reporter Mark English (William Sylvester) attempts to get an expose on how magician/hypnotist The Great Vorelli (Bryant Haliday) manages his stage illusions, but is foiled when Vorelli sets his attention on English's girlfriend Marianne Horn (Yvonne Romain). English realises that Vorelli is trying to make Marianne marry him and is then intending to kill her so that he can obtain her inheritance. His investigations lead him to believe that Vorelli’s ventriloquist’s dummy Hugo may actually be alive and contain the murdered soul of his former stage partner.

DVD contains two versions of the film as well as extras. The Continental version contains extra nude scenes and an additional scene in which Vorelli convinces a woman to disrobe on stage. However, it's at the expense of other material, since this version runs only 15 seconds longer than the UK version.
