The Swiss Conspiracy
"An American investigator battles blackmailers in the Swiss Alps!"
Director: Jack Arnold
Starring: David Janssen, Senta Berger, John Ireland
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.
