Ken Clark is a race car driver and a good one. Some how, he becomes entangled in espionage involving a Russian Ballerina and a secret document called the Fuller Report. Not being any kind of a secret agent, Dick Worth [Clark] has to rely on his quick thinking, catlike reflexes and most of all, his luck to see him through. After all, the powers involved play only one way ... for keeps! Written by
Ken Clark is such a lug. All he wants out of his visit to Stockholm is a Swedish girl but luckily for us he gets much more. I say luckily because this is a heck of a fun movie. Clark plays Dick Worth, an American racing driver in Stockholm to put on an exhibition that his boss Bennet (Jess Hahn) hopes will result in orders for cars. At least that's what Worth believes. Worth gets drawn into CIA business when he is mistaken for a spy and takes on the job of recovering the Fuller Report, CIA information about an assassination plot.
The entire production is visually impressive especially an interrogation and gunfight sequence that takes place in a lumber yard. It's an outstanding location chosen, no doubt, for the many horizontal lines that accent the action. It was even memorable enough to make it onto the Belgian poster! At the end of this sequence, after Worth and his lady have temporarily escaped the clutches of the bad guys, she says to him `I was afraid they would kill you' and he responds `Yeah me too.'
The racing car milieu makes for some fun but the hands down winner here is the killer score by Armando Trovajoli. It's practically non-stop jazzy spy pop that will have you humming long after the VCR has rewound. Look for this one, it's recommended.
