Trivia

This spy spoof movie, influenced by the James Bond film franchise, features Tom Adams in a supporting role as Mike, the owner of Casa Miguel. Adams actually played a James Bond knock-off character, Charles Vine, in three films made to cash in on the James Bond craze in the 1960s: The 2nd Best Secret Agent in the Whole Wide World (1965), Where the Bullets Fly (1966) and O.K. Yevtushenko (1968). See more »

Goofs

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 »

Jump-Starting The Puberties Of 40 Million Baby Boomers
19 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in 1967, Raquel Welch's appearance (rather than performance) in "Fathom" helped jump-start the puberties of around 40 million baby-boomer boys. I never got the chance to see this picture back in '67, unfortunately, and had to have MY puberty jump-started the old-fashioned way: by watching James Bond in the movies and Honey West and Emma Peel on TV (not to mention Laurie R. in junior high!). But 40 years after the fact, I finally caught up with "Fathom" last night. And you know what? The picture really isn't half bad. It's got a good, twisty, intelligent script, tongue in cheek though it may be; beautiful Spanish location shooting; and some colorful characters. The picture also moves quickly and features some good action sequences (such as Racky dodging a maddened bull in a bullring and swimming away from a harpooner in a speedboat). Half the fun in the movie comes from trying to figure out who is lying and what the characters' various motivations are (nobody seems to be telling the truth about anything in this film, and poor Fathom is understandably confused throughout). I quite enjoyed the film, and must say that Raquel's acting is much better than she is given credit for, and that she does indeed look sensational in every scene. Now I can finally understand all those raised hormonal levels 40 years ago!
