Puppet on a Chain () While I liked the book Puppet on a Chain, I felt that the plot (especially the bad guys' scheme) was. too convoluted (see my review). The movie script largely avoided this pitfall by being cut to a mere 97 minutes. The drug-dealers' scheme was still a mite too complex, but I was pleasantly surprised by how deftly. Puppet on a Chain smoothes out after this AIP drive-in exploitation-like opening, to a more traditional visual approach associated with its legendary cinematographer, Jack Hildyard (The Bridge on the River Kwai, The V.I.P.s, the original Casino Royale). However, I rather liked this aesthetic clash right up front; it unsettles you from the start.
