Production

The film's title during production was Dick Barton vs the Death Ray. A fourth Barton film was scheduled, Dick Barton in Africa, but Don Stannard was killed in a car crash driving back from the wrap party and Hammer elected not to continue the series.[2]

Critical reception

Sky Cinema wrote "In their rush to get Barton on to the screen, the makers, despite using the original radio serials as a basis, neglected to give the films the proper budget, resulting in Dick's adventures having an air of tatty, thick-ear melodrama which was never present for the millions of wireless devotees glued to their sets every night at 6.45pm";[3] while TV Guide noted "A simple action-adventure film that moves at an entertaining pace";[4] and Allmovie called it "a far better thriller than its predecessor."[1]
