Goofs

Before Love is sent to Beirut, Jackson checks the papers to be given to Love. The last of them is "a photo of Rosser". Later in Rosser's hotel room in Beirut, however, a very important scene is built around the proposition that Love does not know what Rosser looks like. Love may not be an actual spy, but he should still be able to recognize a man from his photo. See more »

Where the spies were
8 June 2008 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

A dated little movie,but which ,thanks to the cast ,remains entertaining today.It was Goldfinger time and it shows.The scene on the plane recalls the ending of the best James Bond of all time,Vikki broadly playing the part of Pussy Galore.

But it is difficult to believe that a doctor can become a secret agent overnight.But if you forget that (in the highly superior "North by Northwest ",Cary Grant portrayed the same kind of hero),you may find his adventures palatable.

Also notable for the presence of Catherine Deneuve's sister ,Françoise Dorleac,then one of the most promising French actresses who tragically died two years later.
