Kommissar X - Jagd auf Unbekannt (1966, GER/ITA/YUG) C-84m. SCOPE ** D: Frank Kramer (=Gianfranco Parolini). Starring Tony Kendall, Brad Harris, Maria Perschy, Christa Linder, Nikola Popovic. Kendall is a suave private detective, who has all the qualities of James Bond. He is hired to find an abducted scientist, realizes that it's villain Popovic, who is planning evil things on an island. Sometimes enjoyable, sometimes dull, this Bond imitation suffers from low production values but remains a nice view for adepts. Kendall is a fine Connery substitute. Based on a novel by Paul Alfred Müller (writing as Bert F. Island). Followed by six sequels. English title: KISS KISS, KILL, KILL.
