It really looks like a TV movie

This film made for theatres looks like a TV product, or a TV pilot for a series. But it is not. It also smells the sixties at one hundred miles, and I like it. The story has already been told in the plot line. nothing very special here but it remains entertaining, well done, even without any ambition. I saw nearly all the Francis D Lyon's films, and this one is not his best but neither his worst. We can consider it among the tons of mid spy films made in the sixties, with cools heroes, much action atmosphere and beautiful gals hanging around some swimming pools.

I am surprised this film has not been commented yet.

If you like sixties movies, music score, settings and so on, try to get it.
