(1967) Tony Kendall, Brad Harris. Two Yanks are hired to protect a rich lady from a sinister underworld group. Lots of jungle thrills, martial arts, ancient temples, huge explosions, & even sci-fi elements. Watch for Harris' great karate fight inside a crumbling temple, surrounded by masked members of an ancient sect. A cross between James Bond and Indiana Jones. 16mm. Written by
One of six films in the German "Kommissar X" series, this plays a bit like a "Dr. No" wannabe with the action switched to Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and with two heroes instead of one. The heroes are played by Tony Kendall and Brad Harris and the bald-headed henchman by Dan Vadis and together or separately these three actors appeared in a number of those sword-and-sandal and secret-agent and spaghetti-western movies which came out of Europe in the 1960s. As an example of the secret-agent genre, this is familiar and forgettable but modestly entertaining if one isn't too demanding. There's a goodly amount of action, a bit of exotic scenery, (though not as much as one would wish), and a couple of pretty girls -- one blonde and one with black hair. The chief villain turns out to be one of those "mad scientists" who's perfected a deadly form of bacteria. Tony Kendall manages to get his shirt off fairly early while undressing for a bath and Dan Vadis strips to the waist for a fight scene but, alas, Brad Harris remains shirted throughout. Both Kendall and Harris, however, briefly wind up in bondage situations. While watching this makes for harmless time-killing, one probably won't be inspired to track down the other "Kommissar X" movies.
