A Swiss Bank president hires an American investigator to ferret out a group of blackmailers that have been terrorizing his clients. Meanwhile, American gangsters hit the streets of Zurich with the intention of killing a Chicago mob figure, who happens to be one of the blackmail victims. Other blackmail victims include a beautiful Zurish resident, a Texas businessman, and a wealthy Dutchman. The investigator (David Janssen) identifies four potential suspects, including the bank vice-president's mistress (Elke Sommer). Adding to the intrigue is that the Swiss Federal Police are suspicious of the American and are soon making his job more difficult. Ultimately, the investigation leads to the bank paying the chief blackmailer in uncut diamonds, which results in a dramatic showdown in the snow-covered Alps and a surprise revelation. The cast also includes John Saxon, John Ireland, Senta Berger, and Ray Milland.

1976 | HD | 87 minutes

"“The Swiss Conspiracy” was directed by Jack Arnold, who was best known for his achievements in the “B” horror movie genre that boasted such cult classics as “The Incredible Shrinking Man”, “Tarantula” and “Revenge of the Creature”. Arnold proves quite adept in the action film format and brings to the screen a taut thriller that is consistently exciting and entertaining, even if the resolution of the mystery was cited by some critics as being a bit murky. The film also boasts a lively score by Klaus Doldinger and some fine cinematography by W.P. Hassenstein. Interiors were shot at Bavaria Studios in Germany and Production Designer Rolf Zehetbauer provides some suitably impressive set designs. The script was based on the novel by Michael Stanley, who co-wrote the screenplay with Norman Klenman and Philip Saltzman." — excerpt from Lee Pfeiffer's essay included in the booklet for this release.
