Ken Clark works on Daniela Bianchi to recover 16 Polaris missiles from Jacques Bergerac
22 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Special Mission Lady Chaplin" is a good eurospy movie in the James Bond vein. Although it's not as well-done in almost every department as compared with the better Bond movies, why make this comparison? This is a lower-budget effort, a b-movie that seems more, and sound entertainment. In one department, it's superior to Bond. Ken Clark's fights and pursuits are about as realistic as watching those excellent Republic stunt men fight in the old days. Clark does his own stunts, and they are very well staged. There's a battle near the opening in an empty Madrid bullring that's really neat. And that's another plus: locations are always foreign and look right, somewhat more tattered and real than in the Bond movies, which tend to be glossy and high class. Daniela Bianchi has a substantial role, a third big plus. You cannot tell which way she'll fall, because she's in with the bad guy, Jacques Bergerac. A fourth plus is the handling of action scenes. You can tell exactly what's going on and they're staged realistically, with some surprises.

This is a well-done and above-average 60s spy film that carves a niche of its own, freshly and creatively. It still looks good. If your television allows you to alter aspect ratios, play this at a 16:9 aspect ratio so that it will look right.
