American agent Brian Kerwin is sent to Casablanca to locate a missing dossier which can be used to blackmail an important politician. Several parties are interested in it - but who stole it, and where is it now? Kerwin is played by Lang Jeffries, who is a better actor than most of his competitors in this genre (notice the scene where he shows genuine sadness over the death of his female assistant). The women in "Our Man In Casablanca" are given plot-related roles, and are not used as mere eye-candy. And there are some classic genre touches, like echoing footsteps in the middle of a quiet night, and a villain with a special weapon (this time, a literally "electrifying" right hand). It's a technically well-done film, but somehow it's also quite tiresome. An example of this is the sequence where a car with Kerwin and a woman is being pursued by a plane spraying DDT on them. This is an ambitious sequence for the kind of budget these movies usually have, and it's pulled off well, but then it goes on so long that the viewer starts losing interest. ** out of 4.
