Arlene Martel and Jacques Aubuchon
10 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Bob Rafelson's third directorial effort, "The Spy Who Came in from the Cool" is another bright entry, with Davy unwittingly buying a pair of red maracas containing a hidden microfilm; the two spies are played by Jacques Aubuchon and lovely Arlene Martel, soon to gain cult status as Spock's wife T'Pring in STAR TREK's "Amok Time." The CIS agents are played by Don Penny and Booth Colman. With such a non stop array of gags, we get an astounding four songs: a second appearance for both "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" and "Saturday's Child," plus a pair of Michael Nesmith tracks recorded the same day (June 25), "The Kind of Girl I Could Love" (co-written by Roger Nichols, featured on the second LP MORE OF THE MONKEES) and "All the King's Horses," unreleased until 1990, with Nesmith backing Micky's lead vocal. The fifth broadcast (Oct 10 1966, the same day their debut LP came out), "The Spy Who Came in from the Cool" was 6th in production, filmed June 27-July 1.
