Storyline

There is an on-going battle of industrial espionage between rival cosmetics companies, Femina, owned by Sir Jason Fox, and May Fortune, owned by Matthew Cutter. Caught in the middle between the two are among others top industrial designer Patricia Foster, who officially is on May Fortune's payroll after being fired by Femina, and Christopher White, a suave Brit who also is officially on May Fortune's payroll as Cutter's right hand man. On the surface, Patricia is still working for Femina trying to steal the new top secret formula for a water repellent hairspray developed by Dr. Stuart Clancy for May Fortune, that hairspray which would make all other hairsprays obsolete, while Christopher secretly tries to stop her. Below the surface, it is not clear whether either Patricia or Christopher truly are working for May Fortune, Femina or someone else. But as they progress through these on the surface missions, their true missions are eventually revealed as are their true allegiances, which ... Written by Huggo

Crazy Credits

Each screen of the opening credits is presented uniquely. The names of the leads appear in speech/thought bubbles of an extra. One page appears gradually as a walkie-talkie's antenna extends. Others fade in, slide in, are pulled from behind walls, appear with different clipart, etc. See more »

'60s Doris spy caper
20 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that was originally panned but holds up today, probably because the story and fashions are so of the era as to make it somewhat interesting. Doris is bedecked in all sorts of fabulous mod clothes in this confusing story about double agent cosmetic spies. There are some cute scenes, one in a restaurant and another in a movie theater (which is disconcerting because of the 20th Century Fox logo and their music starting - you think the movie may be starting over). Anyway, Doris sings Caprice on the movie screen while her character attempts to get a lock of hair from the woman in front of her. Meanwhile, the woman's boyfriend, embracing his girlfriend, has one hand on Doris' leg.

I disagree with one of the comments that said that Doris was a 45-year-old who thought she was 20, due to her outrageous makeup. In actuality, that was the makeup of the period, and she didn't look strange to me at all.

This is a terribly silly film but enjoyable for the cast, some good scenes, and as a '60s artifact.
