Sir Roger Moore is most famous for playing James Bond (in seven films between 1973 and 1985), this film was released three years before his first Bond film, Live and Let Die (1973), but coincidentally his character says in one scene "Espionage isn't all James Bond on Her Majesty's Secret Service."

A fascinating story - a man haunted by his doppelganger - and Roger Moore's excellent performance(s) make this film worth seeing, even though it overelaborates its point somewhat (the situation becomes clear to us long before Moore figures it out). Still, what we have here is an example of how a good movie can be produced on a relatively low budget, as long as it has a strong script and dependable actors. (***)
