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

A Frank Sinatra song (Come Fly With Me) had a cameo in this movie series. It would be followed in the movie The Ambushers by another Sinatra song Strangers In the Night. Both songs were always played before or after Dean Martin's song Everybody Loves Somebody Sometimes whenever Matt Helm is trying to set a romantic mood with a girl. Also, in both occasions, Martin made fun of those songs(calling in this movie the first song disgusting and referring the second song as a Perry Como song in The Ambushers). See more
During the car chase, Gail Hendricks can be seen sitting much closer to Matt Helm in the shots inside the car compared to the shots from outside (behind) the car. Also the front seat is significantly different when seen from outside the car. It is a bench seat with headrests. See more
