The novel has twice been adapted into films. The first was a British version directed by Walter Summers, The Dark Eyes of London (1939), which turned Wallace's crime story into a more overt horror film. Due to its popularity there, this was the inspiration for a similar German remake, The Dead Eyes of London (1961), directed by Alfred Vohrer.
