...are the reason I Spy is so good. Although Bill Cosby was still feeling his way along as an actor, the writing was good, there was suspense, a twist at the end which was hard to see coming and lots of veteran character actors. This was filmed in Hong Kong while the Vietnam War was heating up so there was some contemporaneous news issues involved. If I heard them correctly, there was $1,000,000 spent on 50,000 guns plus 5,000,000 rounds of ammunition. This seems awfully cheap even by 1965 standards. Laya Raki was married to Ron Randell for many years and she shows to decent advantage here. The inspector was a hoot while Joanne Linville emoted her usual emotions and Walter Burke and James Hong were familiar faces.
