...And Millions Will Die! (aka "And Millions Die") is a 1973 Australian television film shot in Hong Kong directed by Leslie H. Martinson.


The film is about a Nazi war criminal named Franz Kessler (Joseph Furst), a wealthy germ warfare expert living in Hong Kong, who plants a gas-filled time bomb under the city sewers.



The film was a feature-length pilot for a proposed television series called "E-Force", about a crack environmental detective unit trying to track down those responsible for a poison gas attack.[1] The villain Kessler was played by Viennese-born actor Joseph Furst, who was a regular on Australian TV and films. Make-up artist Patricia Glassup is the mother of the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.
