A secret agent possesses a ring that makes him invisible for a short time, once every 10 hours. He is in pursuit of an evil criminal mastermind but, at the same time, must evade an enemy agent who also wants the ring.
Ira von Fürstenberg,
One of the best intrigue/caper movies ever made! Delightful is the perfect word to describe this film that is full of sci-fi gimmicks, plot twists, slick and not-so-slick criminals, and gorgeous dames. Podesta is a 100% bonafide KNOCKOUT!

A diverting bit of fluff. Not as good as a similar movie made the previous year, "Who's Minding the Mint?" I saw a dubbed version of this movie, and that also detracted from the movie. The addition of Lionel Stander made this movie worth watching. A group of convicts breaks out of prison to print their own money while everyone in the country is engrossed in the big soccer match, hoping to get back in their cells before the game ends. Stander, however, only wants to break out of prison and get away. A good plot, a few lags (unlike in "Who's Minding the Mint?"), and familiar faces like Aldolfo Celli and Terry-Thomas thrown in in small bit-parts. Hardly a classic.
