This was Tab Hunter's only spy movie, thank goodness. He's a lousy actor, even flubs his lines at one point, so it's fortunate for us that this aging beach bum didn't find more work in the genre. The film is very convoluted and doesn't make much sense in the end so it's hard to give a damn about Tab anyway. Tab's a journalist who prints a story that neither the good guys not the bad guys like very much. Hence, he's marked for death by bad spies and framed for murder by the good spies. He can't win.
There are a few good things about this general failure of a film. Daniela Bianchi is a big plus. Two more actors help to ease the pain of watching too much Tab. Umberto Raho and Franco Ressel aren't given enough to do here but their presence will help keep you awake. Both are good guys in this film, a rare treat in itself.
The score by Carlo Rustichelli (conducted by Bruno Nicolai) is one of the best things about the film but frankly you won't be missing much if you skip this one.
