Trivia

The Leicester Square Odeon premiere of Amos Klein's latest Charles Lake film "Sunburst Five" features in Frug's copy of "Screen Album", where it states that Roy Baker is the movie's director. This is an in-joke, as in reality, Roy Ward Baker directed this movie. The article notes his filmography includes "Queen's Ransom", which itself is the title of one of Baker's many directing jobs on the third season of the series. See more »

Mildly Entertaining and a feint tribute to 60s heist and spy films
24 February 2019 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

This feature length British spy film adventure, which dovetailed with the successful TV series of "The Saint", had a limited release and departed slightly from the drama of the series by showcasing the talents of, by then, the light comedy talents of stars, Roger Moore and Sylvia Sims. Technically, it has a flat TV look with full screen ratio because of its release previously as a two-part TV format. As a flick it works better. It has an interesting and ingenious plot, and the action, while not particularly suspenseful, is enjoyable and the third act holds up quite well. Despite it's low budget and a TV stage feel, the film has good production values and is well produced. The film pays tribute in a small way to a burgeoning new genre of fantasy spy and heist films, and as an aside, several scenes and motifs in the film resemble other such films: Goldfinger (1964), Pink Panther (1964) and Entrapment (1999).
