Moord in het modehuis
Crime film with cartoon hero Dick Bos
A daring train robbery by an obscure gang called Nemesis is making headlines. When the gang members also kill a partner in a The Hague fashion house and threaten the other owners of the firm, they turns to Dick Bos for help in solving the Nemesis mystery.
Moord in het modehuis was directed by Piet van der Ham and cartoonist Alfred Mazure, who created the Dick Bos character. The lead role in this semi-professional production was played by Maurice van Nieuwenhuizen, a famous judo champion at the time.
Mazure refused to show the film during the war years but unfortunately, by the time the war was over, nobody was interested anymore. The Centrale Commissie voor de Filmkeuring (the Dutch film board), moreover, decided the film was unsuitable for persons under eighteen and in the end Moord in het modehuis was only shown during two private press screenings.
