Richard Harrison baits a trap by impersonating a scientist
"Killers are Challenged" is a good euro-spy picture with plenty of action. Nice location shooting in Morocco and Casablanca helps.
Marcel Chervey plays Coleman, one of three scientists who have a new energy process that will render oil obsolete. A Texas oilman (Aldo Cecconi) has killed two of them as the story begins and is now after Coleman. But Coleman has had plastic surgery. Cecconi's gang has unnamed heavies plus two women. One is Moira, played by Mitsouko, and the other is Halima, played by Janine Reynaud.
Harrison arrives to protect Coleman who flees. After a chase, Coleman is caught, comes to understand who Harrison is, and is shipped off to safety in Geneva. Harrison, posing as Coleman, stays in Casablanca to smoke out the killers. There are at least four attempts on his life.
To add a good many plot complications, we also have Cecconi's mistress, played by Susy Andersen and Coleman's wife, played by Wandisa Guida.
At times there are some unexplained entrances or coincidences, but they usually are more or less explained further on in the story, or else they can be understood in other ways by assuming that people are following each other around off-screen or certain information is passed during conversations not entirely presented through dubbing.
It's a fairly complex cat and mouse game with Harrison playing the mouse and enduring a lot of danger, but he knows enough to sense when the cat is making a move.
The movie has one negative which is an overly long brawl scene toward the end that's played for laughs. This doesn't fit the character of what comes before or after it. I've never seen the virtue in these kinds of extended barroom fight scenes.
This is a fun and engaging 60s spy movie, quite smoothly done in all departments. It holds up well. To me it seems not at all dated, but then I lived through that era.
