Trivia

According to John Heseltine (who restored the car for the film) David Niven couldn't master the idiosyncratic gearbox of the Cord 810 and subsequently it was driven in bottom gear, resulting in it overheating. The scene in the film showing the steaming Cord was hastily rewritten to work around the problem. The car had to be restored from nothing but a rusty collection of parts in just six months to get it ready for filming. See more »

Goofs

Before Love is sent to Beirut, Jackson checks the papers to be given to Love. The last of them is "a photo of Rosser". Later in Rosser's hotel room in Beirut, however, a very important scene is built around the proposition that Love does not know what Rosser looks like. Love may not be an actual spy, but he should still be able to recognize a man from his photo. See more »

Not bad enough to be funny
9 January 2006 | by (Hua Hin, Thailand) – See all my reviews

I happened across this film whilst channel surfing late at night. At first, I thought it was a parody, a bit like 'Casino Royale' -- which Niven must be a lot more proud of! Sadly, I soon came to the realisation that this was not playing for laughs but wanted to be taken seriously. I will concede that Niven, Davenport & others do their best, but the wooden plot, corny lines & truly terribly dated music ruin any efforts by them. This film came out just a couple of years after "From Russia with Love" & is obviously trying to compete with the Bond series. Sadly, it fails miserably. Watch it if you have trouble sleeping, but only if you tire of watching the paint dry!
