Two rivals are out to recover a cache of stolen jewels. The thief who originally stole them has just gotten out of prison, however, and he is looking for his twin brother, who knows where the jewels are hidden. Complications ensue.

“Kommissar X” is a private detective named Joe Louis Walker (from a series of German crime fiction books) who was a counterpart of the German crime fiction FBI Special Agent Jerry Cotton. Between 1965 and 1971 seven Kommissar X films were made with Tony Kendall as the laid back swinging New York City private eye Joe Walker balanced against the serious muscular New York City Police Captain Tom Rowland played by Brad Harris.

With the international success of the films of Ian Fleming’s James Bond and the German Jerry Cotton (played by George Nader) series, seven Kommissar X films were made. These films were not only released internationally but became a staple of American television movies in the mid-1960s when American stations sought colour films to show.
