a predecessor to the james bond films with an alluring femme fatale
A James Bond like secret agent becomes embroiled with international intrigue, which might have led to some excitement if only the budget had allowed for the requisite chases, etc. However, this film - a TV staple back in the 1970s when local channels needed to fill their ninety minute mid-day movie bill - has virtually disappeared from sight. No great loss, other than the leading lady: Sabine Sesselman as 'Sabina' is, like Jane Greer in the far loftier OUT OF THE PAST, the goodgirl for the first half and bad girl during the second half. At the movie's midpoint, she suddenly shoots and kills her partner in crime, without so much as a cringe. The sequence is generally shocking and strangely erotic - and, at the end, the hero actually considers slipping away with her to the tropics rather than turning her in to the police. Worth seeing, if the chance arises, for Sabina's sensual allure.
