Great but surprisingly seldom broadcast femme fatale movie.
20 August 2002 | by dlsigner322See all my reviews

Saw this one when it was originally released in '67 and immediately fell in love with the curvy assassins. Well typecasted; actors are very believable. One of the few super spy movies that can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the James Bond movies.
