More a murder mystery than a spy flick, Ladies' Man qualifies under a vague espionage angle; four beautiful women (naturally) who happen to be married to powerful men in politics and industry are blackmailed into revealing government secrets.
Eddie Constantine reprises his role as the hard-drinking FBI agent Lemmy Caution with his usual winning sarcasm whose fame is such that when we first see him, he is being mobbed by female admirers. Such is the life.
There are plenty of humorous moments, nice cars, and beautiful women to keep the viewer amused but this film, like many in the series, tends to slide by without making much of an impact. Paul Misraki's score is as undistinguished as the rest of the film.
It's a pleasant diversion and the popularity of Constantine at the time is easily understood as he chides the back guys, woos the women, and relies on brains and brawn to get the job done.
