The first Jerry Cotton movie is a good one. Jerry's after crooks who pose as a musical band. He infiltrates the gang, cozying up to their gun moll boss and trying to find out what she knows... See full summary »
A rich capitalist is blackmailed and threatened with the murder of his daughter. There's a terrific scene where gangsters bust in and kidnap a young woman. One of three excellent Jerry Cotton films we now offer. Color, 35mm.

The print currently posted on YouTube is really lousy...which is a shame since other Agent Jerry Cotton films on the site are terrific quality. It's also possible that there's a better copy on the site...so you might want to look around first to see if another is there as well.
When the film begins, evil Robert Fuller (of "Emergency" fame) is holding some women hostage. Soon, in smashes Cotton...saving the day. Interestingly, Fuller is dubbed her by someone other than himself...which is odd considering it is in English.
Soon Agent Cotton is investigating a strange murder in which a wife and her small child are brutally and methodically killed...as if by an assassin. Later, more similar deaths occur and there is no obvious link between them and the killers are not the same person. It seems as if some sort of murder for hire scheme is taking place. Oddly, the trail soon leads to an evil psychiatrist who apparently convinces very sick people that they have a compulsion to kill for him! Nice guy, huh? So how is Cotton going to catch him and put an end to all this nastiness?
This is yet another Cotton film. I've seen three so far and they all are exciting light-weight fun...and are worth seeing. George Nader is excellent in the lead and the films are a bit like smaller- scale James Bond films with less gadgets and domestic criminals instead of Spectre-like baddies. Worth your time.
