England had James Bond.France had OSS117 and Coplan,and SAS for those whose taste runs that way.None of them became an international star as Ian Fleming's hero did.
Riccardo Freda is the entertainment director par excellence.He did horror movies,swashbucklers,sword and sandals ,melodramas ..and spy thrillers in the wake of James Bond.This one is not bad ,in spite of a budget which you cannot compare to Salzman/Broccoli productions.The scene when Coplan discovers his own coffin in the hacienda might be a nod to the prologue of "Thunderball".The cold room scene is good suspense too.The rest is business as usual
