Madame Kim Soo is a respected benefactor to social causes in Thailand, but she enjoys viewing Muay-Thai matches with a handsome male escort. Jo Walker and his friend Tom Rowland notice her at ring side, because of her haughty demeanor and beauty. Later, as they search for an American girl who disappeared, possibly another victim of a prostitution-ring, they will visit her at her entertainment club for rich patrons only. The club, situated in a secretive “island of 1,000 lotus flowers”, offers foreign sex tourists all kinds of pleasure they may wish for. To the peril of his life, Joe Walker goes alone to meet Kim Soo, after identifying her as the leader of an army of thugs with a tattoo with three snakes. Will Captain Tom Rowland and the Thai paratroopers arrive in time to save Joe Walker from death in the island of lost girls?

“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.

1965: Kommissar X – Jagd auf Unbekannt – Hunt for the Unknown | Kiss Kiss, Kill Kill
1966: Kommissar X – In den Klauen des goldenen Drachen – Operation Far East
1967: Kommissar X – Drei gelbe Katzen – Three Yellow Cats
