Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In German with English subtitles.

The original German title of this film is, "Es Geschah am Hellichten Tag." "It Happened in Broad Daylight" is an austere but shocking story of the hunt for a human monster. A forest community is terrorized by a child murderer, who -  per the title - strikes in broad daylight. Whereas such a criminal might be more easily tracked down in the confines of a big city, the village police are obliged to comb miles and miles of mountains and wooded wilderness. A detective (Heinz Ruhmann) goes undercover to trap the murderer, posing as a workman with a wife (actually a local widow) and child. Veteran French character actor Michel Simon briefly appears as a suspect in this film, one of the more accomplished European suspensers of the 1950s.
