'Operation Amsterdam' & 'Amsterdamned' Both Exist
By Jan Kijlstra

After answering Scott Olson I read the message from Tom McAuley.

He informed us about and told us that 'Operation
Amsterdam' still is available.  I checked it out, and indeed: it's there.
But -- 'Amsterdamned' also is in stock.  Both videos are not different
versions of the same film, I think.  I did not know this, and now am
putting ashes on my head...

So there is a new question: In the Dick Maas film 'Amsterdamned', indeed
a (copy of) a street organ is demolished by a police car.  That's the
link to the MMD.

But it's very likely that in "Operation Amsterdam" also some
street organ wil show up.  True?

Jan Kijlstra

 [ Maybe show up at the bottom of a canal?  Wearing concrete shoes?
 [ You know how these gangster movies always end!  ;)
 [ If it was the ending of a James Bond movie we might see the villain
 [ lashed to the music-carton as it moves into the reader and fingers
 [ of the organ!  Jolly scene!  -- Robbie
