Storyline

Colonel Mostyn is the chief of a section of the British Security Services when they are embarrassed by the number of spies and defections. The Chief tells him to do something about it so he hires Boys Oaks as Agent L - The Liquidator, to assassinate people about to cause trouble. Although Boys likes the cars and the girls that his new position attracts he's not any good at it. He's also got a phobia about flying that makes jetting off to exotic places a bit of an embarrassment. Written by Steve Crook <steve@brainstorm.co.uk>

Bond spoof rates a double-zero...
26 June 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Vapid spy-stuff with tongue-in-check and brain-in-neutral. Rod Taylor (handsome and game, as usual) plays an accidental hero who becomes a secret agent for the British. Begins well (with an amusingly melodramatic Shirley Bassey theme song and clever credits sequence), but film then goes downhill while trying--and failing--to formulate a plot. The funniest line is when Taylor's boss cries out, "They've got us by the short 'n curlies!", which I thought was a little risqué for 1965. Jack Cardiff directs, in his usual impersonal style; he seems to know very little about the spy genre, and approaches the material in a by-the-numbers fashion. Peter Yeldham sketchily adapted John Gardner's book. *1/2 from ****
