In general, I prefer European films to those made in USA, are superior to all intents and purposes. But after seeing this film and then reading those 4 negative reviews here on IMDb, I must write in this: I recommend to those who wrote the 4 reviews, to watch some eurospy movies (James Bond type films made exclusively in Europe, excepting United Kingdom), most are much worse than this film (I saw over a hundred). And now, my own review: This "A Man Called Dagger" (1968) has much in common with the original James Bond movies. First, the music signed Steve Allen, sounds almost note for note with the original theme signed by John Barry. Then, Richard Kiel, before playing in "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977) and "Moonraker" (1979). The script, written after the Bond recipe. Richard Rush is a director with a keen sense of humor. As Paul Mantee, who plays Dick Dagger, some kind of a restrained, discreet and, especially, very peaceful, non aggressive, James Bond. Jan Murray is not bad at all as the villain Rudolph Koffman / Hans Leitel and all the actresses, Terry Moore, Sue Ane Langdon, Eileen O'Neill, Maureen Arthur, are funny. Everything is a fine parody.
