Based on Paul Kenny's novel ,it features his secret agent ,Francis Coplan .In the wake of the success of James Bond,the director,Maurice Labro would continue in the sixties,with another Coplan ("Coplan Prend Des Risques " ),and two others ,a pleasant harmless "Corrida Pour Un Espion" and a dud "Casse-Tête Chinois Pour Le Judoka " which brought his career to an end.
Henri Vidal ,the most handsome actor of the fifties ,plays Coplan,but people might want to see this flick for Lino Ventura,in one of his rare parts of a villain (before he became famous ,he was given those roles). Nicole Maurey starred in Bresson's "Journal D'un Curé De Campagne" .It's a far cry from it.
