A top secret chemical formula has been stolen by STENCH (the Society for the Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans), and so Agent Simpkins and his three trainees are hot on the trail, chasing the villains across the world. There are gadgets galore, and disguises are compulsory if the heroes are to win the day from The Fat Man, Dr Milchman and Dr Crow!

The movie spoofed the Ian Fleming
spy and criminal organization acronym, such as SMERSH and SPECTRE from the James Bond films, and UNCLE from the movies and TV series. These acronym spoofs in this picture were BOSH, SNOG, SMUT and STENCH. Their meanings are as follows: BOSH: The British Operational Security Headquarters; SNOG: The Society for the Neutralisation of Germs; SMUT: The Society for the Monopoly of Universal Technology and STENCH: The Society for Total Extinction of Non-Conforming Humans.

I cannot smoke those, they make me deaf!
A scene - apparently now lost - shows Agent Bind stopping to feed money into a fruit machine as the other recruits are escaping the fun house. It would seem that all existing prints of "Spying" now fade out just before this occurs but there is anecdotal evidence suggesting that this full version had been shown on British TV at least once during the 70s.
