(German: Agatha, laß das Morden sein!) is a 1960 West German comedy crime film directed by Dietrich Haugk and starring Johanna von Koczian, Klausjürgen Wussow and Elisabeth Flickenschildt.[1] It is a parody both of the ongoing film series of Edgar Wallace adaptations but also the traditions of the mystery novels of Agatha Christie.
