Aspen Matthews is an amnesiac who was taken in by a naval officer and given the chance to piece together her identity; eventually she learns that she's the member of a race of aquatic humanoids who can control water.
In Southern Spain with a U.S. team, skydiver Fathom Harvill is approached by a Scottish colonel working for a top-secret Western agency. He's after a vital lost atomic device, and wants her to parachute into a house occupied by some Red Chinese agents to help get the thing back. Apart from all this there is a predatory continental doctor on his yacht to take account of. Fathom soon realizes nothing is what it seems to be, but can she fathom the truth out? Written by

Fathom correctly packs the parachute at the beginning of the movie. See more »
In the first moments of the shot where Fathom walks down the steps in her bikini, she is standing still on one step, and the people below are also standing largely motionless, all obviously awaiting their cues to start the action. See more »
I'd never seen or even heard of this offering in the 60's comedy spy genre until Film 4 padded out their evening schedule with it. How dated it all looked, understandably. But it was a jolly romp, great locations and with pretty good enthusiastically staged stunts. Ms Welch was very decorative as usual and the Britsh character actors excellent in support. Good to see Tom Adams in a solid supporting role, Clive Revill was always good value in this sort of movie too. Amazingly the two aircraft flown in this movie, a Cessna 172 and a Piper Cherokee 180, are still active and licenced in the UK, wearing their original registrations, forty years after the film was made.
