 Alistair MacLean 

Stars:

 Sven-Bertil TaubeBarbara ParkinsAlexander Knox

The story starts as a professional hit man calmly walks into a California house and kills three people. Narcotics cop Paul Sherman (Sven-Bertil Taube) is sent to Amsterdam to investigate the murders. Puppet on a Chain, from the novel by Alistair MacLean, is a fast paced action thriller with an exciting boat chase through Amsterdam's canals. Good location photography add to the interest of the film, including a shot of the famous hippie hangout in Dam Square. The title refers to a type of death where a victim is hung by the neck from a chain. This is a great and underrated film.  ★★★
