Dean Martin's Matt Helm is always fun to watch. Definitely designed as PG male entertainment but I still love it. Recently saw all 4 movies again and I admit each still kept my attention as fun. The main female characters in these films maintained strong images for the times and it was great to see them. Some appeared in other 60's fun movies and maintained strong images. The 2 James Flint movies are also quirky fun but did not have strong women characters. I just noticed that in the Wrecking Crew - as Matt picks up his jacket to leave there is dust on the pink cushions around the jacket BUT not under it which shows a concern for detail by the film crew - kudos. The music is great !
