Goofs

At the end of the film, Drummond (Richard Johnson) and Robert (Steve Carlson) dive off the yacht and swim away from the boat towards Grace (Suzanna Leigh), who is in the water. But as the film cuts to a long shot and the final credits roll, they are still swimming towards her - but from the other direction, moving towards the boat. See more »

Spy-spoof Thriller with Bikinis Galore!
1 August 2004 | by shepardjessicaSee all my reviews

This 1966 adventure flick was quite well done and Richard Johnson seems perfectly cast as the lead. The real treat of this flick is the women: Elke Sommer in a bikini with spear-gun is as attractive as any Bond moment, Suzannah Leigh, and the Italian beauty Sylvia Koscina. Nigel Green is great again as a corrupt adversary and the locations are great. This is a 7 out of 10. Best performance = Elke Sommer.

This blows away FATHOM with Raquel Welch. Tough chicks who are easy on the eyes in the mid-60's will always be a joy to watch. Don't sell this one short. Well worth the effort and a pleasant experience. This is definitely available so look for it if you dig those 60's spoofs!
