Well, Stewart Granger is a different kind of James Stewart, a more masculine voice, less whining. But he can't be considered a tough guy like Sean Connery, he's more the Roger Moore type. Daniela Bianchi is beautiful, blonde and that's it. With Peter van Eyck, things are different. He is a very good actor, a real personality, a character of great charm . Sergio Sollima's is not bad as director. Yet this Requiem for a Secret Agent is fad. It fails to captivate with anything, except that it shows us a little of Morocco. Maybe that is even the reason for which the action in all spy movies is set in an exotic location, if it's not Morocco, is Istanbul, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Havana, Rio, Mexico, Cairo, etc. If we don't have a good great plot, we travel a lot.
