Lame cash-in on the '60s spy craze
2 April 2000 | by Kitty-66-2See all my reviews

I saw this on late-night broadcast TV in the early '80s, when old spy movies were a dime a dozen on New York City-area TV. I remember boyishly handsome Horst Buchholtz doing a pretty poor job of aping Sean Connery/Robert Vaughn/Robert Culp as the cool, suave secret agent; Horst came off as annoyingly smug. There was enough good action (including a fun chase through the sewers) and exotic '60s atmosphere, though, to make it enjoyable fluff for fans of the genre. If this diehard spy movie fan could find it on video, she'd pay $10 to own a copy.
