Trivia

CEA agent Don Masters (Godfrey Cambridge) wears a "Dizzy Gillespie for President" sweatshirt at the beginning of the movie. Legendary jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie actually ran a short-lived campaign for the office in 1964 which, while not entirely serious, appealed to many disaffected voters. See more »

Goofs

Don gives Sidney an ID badge. Looking over Sidney's shoulder, both hands are on the ID, but when seen from the front his hands are apart and the ID is in his right hand. See more »

Quotes

Don Masters, CEA Agent: I'm a CEA agent.
Dr. Sidney Schaefer: [rises from desk, walks over to read ID card] You ARE a CEA agent. And you really did kill someone!
Don Masters, CEA Agent: Ahhummm.
Dr. Sidney Schaefer: Fascinating, Don... I suppose it's the conditioning of motion pictures, or television, or maybe it's just it's the times we live in, but... killing is serious business, yet this little card makes it somehow less shocking... acceptable in a way! You mean to say you can actually legally kill someone?
Don Masters, CEA Agent: Yeah, and it bothers me sometimes that I don't feel guilty about it. Don't...

This movie is groovy
28 January 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

To me this is the movie about the paranoia of the 1960s. Theodore Flicker has made a gem.

In my estimation this movie features the best performances by both James Coburn and Godfrey Cambridge. The beauty of the film is that it moves from serious tones to comedy to farce without effort.

I hope this is a movie that no one tries to remake. In today's market there would be a car chase and this would turn into an out and out thriller.

One of the best films of the 1960s. Go to your video store or your movie rental company and take this movie home today. Sit back and laugh.
