Curious movie

I really don't know how to classify this item. Is it espionage, drama, thriller, or a little of everything of this? At first sight, after the opening credits with the computer scene, you may think of a science fiction flick, but it appears that it is not the case. The story line has already been told above, so I won't tell it again. But the overall feeling is that it is rather amusing, especially with George Hamilton as a big scale crook snooping around swimming pools and bathing beauties. I don't know what Ken Annakin did with all this stuff. Certainly to pay his bills. He lost his soul here, in America, with such a tongue in cheek piece of work. Maybe his UK roots lead him to make this feature with some James Bond accents from time to time...That's all the explanation or analyse I can bring to you folks. I am surprised that no one has commented it yet.
