solid 60's euro-spy film with great jazz score
19 December 2001 | by (south Texas USA) – See all my reviews

This review is of the SWV video of an American International TV print, in color, of this obscure 1965 Italian film. A starving writer is offered $20,000 by an old friend in the intelligence service to pose as "Felix," an international smuggler, because the writer looks exactly like this Felix. There's lots of action, beautiful locations in Italy and (presumably) Istanbul, double-crosses galore, fistfights and chases, etc. Star "Christopher Logan" is obviously a European, who looks somewhat familiar, but I can't place him--he reminds me vaguely of a euro version of the young Christopher Walken or Sean Penn. As someone who has watched countless 60's European spy/crime films, I'd definitely consider this one above average. In addition, there is a superb modern jazz score throughout--like an unknown 1965 Blue Note quintet session. For fans of the genre, this film is well worth getting!!
