Goofs

In the final fight scene on the train, a trap door opens up on the floor of the locomotive and we see the ground beneath rush by. However, no railroad ties are visible. The "ground" is very likely just a treadmill belt. See more »

Swinging '60s
10 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is fantastic in its execution, not its substance, but it was never intended to be serious.

The movie has all the glamor, and opulence that only American movies seems to be able to deliver. The choice of color, the character, and of course the girls.

Dean Martin's Matt Helm was a product of the swinging '60s, and it's a beautiful movie in its own way. I wish that the modern movies had more of this kind of opulence to its style. Why not live a little like the way these people did ?

It's intentionally silly, but if you take away the silly it still has the glamor like nothing you see these days. The movie is worth seeing for this alone.

Elke Sommer, and Sharon Tate were beautiful, and we don't see beauties like this anymore either.
