Young Queen Margot finds herself trapped in an arranged marriage amidst a religious war between Catholics and Protestants. She hopes to escape with a new lover, but finds herself imprisoned by her powerful and ruthless family.
Often sold as a European James Bond ripoff but even that is giving it too much credit. Cheap, low budget, black and white with a cast of unknowns. It was released in may 1964 meaning it was made before the James Bond craze so can hardly be called a response to that series. The hero is a drag. The plot, they're looking for some rocket fuel or something, is hardly worth mentioning and the bad guys not scary. Virni Lisi is nice to look at and takes a bath in one scene which is the closest you'll get to any excitement in this waste of time film. Some time after the James Bond craze and ever since films like this were released as another secret agent film. That is how this DVD was advertised to me. But don't be fooled.
