KOMMISSAR X - DREI GRÜNE HUNDE - "Death Trip" (1967)

I thought we had done all the Kommissar X movies, but I've come to learn, it's hard to get to the end of some things. We've done "Kommissar X - Drei Gelbe Katzen,""Kommissar X - Drei Goldene Schlangen," "Kommissar X - In Den Klauen Des Goldenen Drachen," and "Kommissar X - Jagd auf Unbekannt," but we never did "Kommissar X - Drei Grüne Hunde," so that's why it's this week's Saturday Night Special!
Lord Litter discovered that this film was streaming on YouTube, so he naturally passed it on to me, and so I'm doing the same for you, because it's not too bad of a copy, and the commercials are limited. "Kommissar X - Death Trip" (Drei Grüne Hunde)
So here they are again, Tony Kendall as Joe Louis Walker or Kommissar X, and Bad Brad Harris as Captain Tom Rowland, in what is considered the fourth of the "Kommissar X" series.
The original title is "Kommissar X - Drei Grüne Hunde," but it was also released in English as "Death Trip," and/or "Kill Me Gently."

There's enough L.S.D. in this container to destroy the security of a whole nation, and now it's been stolen!

Herbert Fux as Eddie Shapiro is one of the main thugs who want to get their hands on the L.S.D. The disheveled Shapiro reminds me of some character out of a Bowery Boys movie because he's got that classic gangster look to him!

Herbert (House Of 1000 Dolls, Gorilla Gang) Fux had an amazing 281 credits to his name before passing away at the age of 79 in 2007. The last thing he worked on wouldn't be released until two years after his death and was titled "Zapping-Alien@Mozart-Balls." Now that was a title I had to look further into, and I found out the whole almost two hours of non-stop madness was put up on YouTube in it's entirety by the Filmmaker himself, Vitus Zeplichal. I take no responsibility for any mind erosion incurred by watching this, you're on your own on this one!
So you guys think it's funny, eh? Well, we'll see who is laughing at the end of the movie!

"Cigars, cigarettes, little weird dolls!"

This particular shot says a lot about this movie! What it's saying is another story!

Joe Walker pulls a fast one on Shapiro by telling him the goods he wants are at the bottom of this aquarium, and then when he reaches in, Joe drops his electric razor into the tank. Shapiro's reaction was kind of shocking!

What a terrible place for Jo Louis Walker to have to hide! 

It's hard to get much cuter than puppies recording bad guys!

This is a trick car. A girl goes in........

............And a guy comes out!

"So, what'd we gonna do?" "I dunno, what'd you wanna do?" "I don't know, what'd you want to do?" "I don't know, what'd you wanna do?"
And so it goes!

In the movie, they call this area the Valley of a Thousand Mountains, but in reality this is Cappadocia, a region in central Turkey that is so olde, Troglodytes used to live here!
I think that leaves us with one more Kommissar X film!

You'll be the first to know when I figure it out!

This isn't my favorite, but I can't resist the Kommissar X series.
