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's name was an amalgam of the first names of the character's uncles who were called (in order of the letters in Fathom's name) Freddie, Arthur, Tom, Harry, Oscar and Milton. 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 »
Señorita, how did you ever get a name like Fathom?
A fathom is six feet. Papa was hoping for a tall son. Papa was disappointed.

Terrific spy spoof with tongue-in-cheek dialogue. Breezy in every sense of the word. Everyone's timing is wonderfully in-synch. Cleo Laine's husband, Johnny Dankworth provides just the right kind of smirky jazzy score. The entire supporting cast is well-cast and delivers wonderfully. Tony Franciosa makes a perfect leading man for her in his own breezy style.
But, Raquel, her array of fun-loving smiles, her bikinis, her attitude, her sparkling eyes, and poppet-like expressions are what makes this movie a guilty-pleasure classic for me. She wiggles, jiggles, plays dumb, acts smart, empathises, exercises, sky-dives, and always but always, smiles.
And, dare I say it? What a magnificent body!!!
