Director Sergio Grieco (billed as Terence Hathaway) again pits Roger Browne against Franco Ressel just as he did in Rififi in Amsterdam (67). This time Ressel plays the villain Albert Kowalski in drag and in a wheelchair for the bulk of the film, a strange angle that's never fully explained. Roger Browne is agent Douglas Gordon who has a nifty designer wardrobe and charm enough to unite superpowers in thwarting Kowalksi's plans.
Exotic locations like Paris, Tripoli, and Madrid, a fun score by Piero Umiliani and put off lines for girls that don't measure up (`you're very sweet and someday I want you to meet my twin brother') help to keep this average actioner afloat.
