Richard Wyman and Gil Delamare scour Istanbul and environs for missing scientist
"Coplan FX 18 casse tout" (1965) is a decent Eurospy movie from the era of such, which was the 60s. I watched a widescreen copy with English dubbing. I'd rate it higher if I understood more of the plot details, that is, what led Coplan from one place to another. The strong points of this movie are as follows. There is location shooting in Turkey that's quite extensive, including Istanbul and Cappadocia cave dwellings. The stunt work is outstanding, with some inventive scenes. Coplan is played as a quite stern spy, and this works. The climactic sequences are Bondish and impressively staged in giant caverns that look real. The picture is a professional effort with good photography that affords reasonable pleasure for those who like this genre, which I do for a change of pace.
