In this, the first Matt Helm movie, we see Matt Helm coaxed out of semi-retirement by an attractive ex-partner. It seems that the evil Big O organization has a nefarious plan called "Operation: Fallout." If this plan comes to fruition, Big O will explode an atomic bomb over Alamogordo, NM, and start WWIII. Only Matt Helm can stop them. Written by

Woven (almost literally) through the opening credits are three cleverly staged striptease dances by Mary Jane Mangler (brunette in blue), Larri Thomas (blond in white), and 'guest star' Cyd Charisse in red (who also performs the title number, voice dubbed by Vikki Carr). Charisse emerges roughly 40 minutes later in the film as an actual character - nightclub dancer Sarita. See more
