Frankie Avalon and George Nader (that guy from "The Robot Monster") are a couple of wise-cracking, swingin' secret agents. Their enemy is Shirley Eaton as Su-Muru, who plans to remove all of the men who are currently in power and replace them with her army of women, most of who are shown in skimpy (for 1967) bikinis or mini skirts, and who can all perform complex tasks such as break a man's neck with their thighs. Avalon and Nader make "friends" with several members of Su-Maru's army, then invade with the local army and kill the rest of them. Written by

Shirley Eaton strikes a formidable figure as all-powerful Sumuru...but film is a mishmash of clichés
An anti-male syndicate of beautiful female assassins, headquartered near Hong Kong and led by the no-nonsense, whip-wielding Sumuru, plots international domination by ridding the world of its male leaders; two wisecracking American agents use their masculine charms to save mankind. British production, distributed stateside by AIP, is a fairly tepid adventure with 'humorous' asides. There are some interesting ideas (any woman who betrays Sumuru by falling in love with a man is automatically targeted for extermination), but not enough imagination or excitement. Shirley Eaton is impressive in the title role, and her army is certainly attractive, but puerile George Nader and Frankie Avalon are dead weights on the action. Eaton played Sumuru again in 1969's "The Girl From Rio". *1/2 from ****
