There are two scenes with photos in the background of scantily clad women. In one of the photos, a woman's breast is clearly visible for a couple of seconds.

A nude woman gets out of bed (where a man is sleeping). Her breasts are briefly visible and full rear nudity is seen.

Twice a woman is seen in bed (post-coital) and her breast is visible. In one of the scenes, part of her buttock is also briefly visible.

An ambush on a motorcade is shown with lots of gunfire, but nobody is injured.

A man is executed by firing squad with a follow-up coup de grace from a revolver.

Several people are killed, but the violence is very mild and most of it is just off screen. There are also a few people seen after they have been killed, but it is never graphic.

The whole plot is about an assassination attempt.

There is a brief exchange of gunfire in which two people are shot.

Lots of smoking and some drinking. Also a discussion about ingesting something to appear sick.
