The movie starts with a dinner party at Blackmoor Castle. Lucius Clark(Rudolf Fernau) announces he is soon to be knighted. Things don't get any better than that for Clark because that night he visited by a phantom in a black mask. The masked man demands "the diamonds" and swears vengeance beginning with the strangling of one of his servants. Along with strangling, decapitating and other sorts of killings, the phantom also brands an "M" on the heads of the victims.

Along with The Phantom and clark are quite a few more colorful characters including his reporter niece, Claridge (Karin Dor), the quirky Lord Blackmoor(Walter Giller), a diamond cutting butler (Dieter Eppler), a Scotland Yard detective (Harry Riebauer) complete with Watson (Gerhard Hartig), a multi personalitied bar maid (Ingmar Zeisberg), and a hole digging boy named Phips (Stephan Schwartz). All the characters and a pretty good mystery story complete with dungeons and plenty of red herrings, not to mention a lot of fighting and action, combine to give us a very enjoyable flick.
