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

After taking control of the plane, it is shown in a steep dive with a left spin. Peter gives Fathom instructions to turn the "wheel" HARD LEFT and pull back on throttle. She's already in a left spin, turning the yoke "HARD LEFT will only increase the spin rate. Next he says, push FORWARD (on the yoke) don't be afraid of diving... she's already in a dive, there is no need to increase speed at that point. Pushing forward helps recover airspeed and prevent stalling. It doesn't help when already in a dive. See more »

Raquel Welch, at the peak of sexiness, does the perfect Bond girl one better--she's Bond herself! The flimsy and kooky premise has Fathom caught up in a international hunt for a Red Chinese nuclear device hidden in a Ming Dynasty dragon statuette. She dodges bullets, jumps out of planes, and plays each side against one another, all along looking sensational. This is a stylish little movie directed by the same guy who later delivered such colorful TV fluff as "The Brady Bunch," "Wonder Woman," and "Fantasy Island." But the real draw is the understated almost smirky performance by Raquel. Raquel's Fathom is all woman: a gorgeous fashion-plate, yet strong, smart, and very much in control. Catch her if you can!
