Strangler of the Swamp (1946) by MargaliMorwentari

 

Strangler of the Swamp is a 1946 American horror film, produced and distributed by Producers Releasing Corporation. It was written and directed by Frank Wisbar, and stars Rosemary LaPlanche, Robert Barrat and Blake Edwards. It is a remake of Wisbar’s earlier German film Fährmann Maria (1936)

 

 

Written and directed by Frank Wisbar, this hour-long B thriller from 1946 is so obscure that it doesn’t even rank an entry in Leonard Maltin’s Movie & Video Guide, but it’s a perfectly adequate example of the low-budget fare that was cranked out like sausages by Producer’s Releasing Corporation (PRC) in post-World War II Hollywood. Of interest to trivia buffs is the youthful appearance of future Pink Panther director Blake Edwards as the movie’s youthful would-be hero, while Rosemary La Planche plays his beloved, who would sacrifice herself to spare her lover from the title character–the shadowy ghost of a ferryman (played by Charles Middleton) who haunts the local swampland, avenging his wrongful hanging for murder. Steeped in rich, foggy atmosphere, the film copies the effective visual style of Wisbar’s earlier German film Fährmann Maria, and although this shoestring spooker barely registers on the fright meter, it’s still an interesting oddity for hardcore film buffs, who will appreciate the fact that a movie of such minimal consequence has somehow made its way to DVD.

Muay Thai  is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.
