Exotic locales, gorgeous gals, a virile hero, and several rugged action scenes make "Beast with a Gun" director Sergio Grieco's "From the Orient With Fury" a tolerably entertaining espionage epic. This constituted the second of the three Dick Maloy, Agent 077, movies,an obvious derivative James Bond knock-off lensed in a variety of international settings with larger-than-life heroes and villains. Ken Clark acquits himself well in the role of the two-fisted CIA agent who must rescue a scientist from the villains. The scientist, Professor Frank Kurtz, has perfected a beta ray gun that can disintegrate any metal. The action shifts from Paris to Madrid to Instanbul as Maloy and Kurtz's daughter try to find him. Franco Ressell makes an excellent villain who abducts the professor and tries to throw the CIA off the trail by staging the professor's death. Despite a healthy looking budget, "From the Orient With Fury" isn't as furious as it could have been.
