Trivia

Back-to-back consecutive spy movie for co-writer Peter Yeldham who had co-penned The Liquidator (1965) for his previous film released in the previous year. Yeldham had also recently co-written such similar exotic Middle Eastern fare as Mozambique (1964) and 24 Hours to Kill (1965) set in Beirut. See more »

Failed Hitchcock imitation at least has a jaunty Randall and scintillating Berger...
4 November 2014 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

British-made film (released under a variety of different titles around the world) involves Tony Randall as an American hotel-builder, newly-arrived in Morocco, who becomes involved in a $2M plot to change votes at the United Nations. Despite poster art designed to look like a spy spoof (with Randall an unlikely substitute for James Bond), this minor, droll offering is more in keeping with the latter-day Hitchcock films ("North by Northwest", in particular), with the dryly-resolved star getting deeper into hot water with every plot turn. Senta Berger is a very attractive mystery woman, and she matches up surprisingly well with Randall (grounded and more affable than usual), but the supporting cast of old pros is never given anything especially exciting to do. Director Don Sharp, working from a wayward, rudderless screenplay by Peter Yeldham, does some keen work, yet the finale is confusing instead of suspenseful, and the overall air of familiarity is wearing. ** from ****
