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 (1965) and 24 Hours to Kill (1965) set in Beirut. See more »

`I think there's been some foul play' says Tony Randall upon discovering a dead body with a knife in its back stashed in the closet of his hotel room. Comedy is hard and although this one spends too much time as a chase movie, it is still largely successful thanks to a great cast and good script.
Director Don Sharp, in his only spy outing, has crafted an enjoyable and funny film that doesn't resort too often to slapstick or other forms of cheap laughs. It manages to tread the line between humor and danger keeping the viewer interested enough to evoke plenty of hearty chuckles. A light and entertaining spy comedy, this is one of the best of the bunch.
