A positive view of the first Jerry Cotton film.
18 February 1999 | by (West Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw SCHUSSE AUS DEM GEIGENKASTEN under the English title OPERATION HURRICANE: FRIDAY NOON. It was dubbed, and it was great. George Nader plays Jerry Cotton, F.B.I. agent who works mostly in the New York City area in this first installment of the German action/thriller series from the 1960's. Jerry Cotton was Germany's answer to James Bond. In comparison to the Bond films, the Jerry Cotton movies are not as "posh", but they are better stories. OPERATION HURRICANE is the first and best of the series. The story is very interesting, with a few turns to keep the viewer going up to the end. Peter Thomas did the music for the Jerry Cotton films, and it is the best spy music I have ever heard. I have a difficult time getting the theme out of my head. Two soundtracks were released for the series, one contained dialogue from this particular film (in German, of course). This film has a very cool "sixties secret agent" look, feel, and sound to it. If you're in the mood for a different approach to the spy genre, cozy up to SCHUSSE AUS DEM GEIGENKASTEN. It'll be worth it.
