In this, the first Matt Helm movie, we see Matt Helm coaxed out of semi-retirement by an attractive ex-partner. It seems that the evil Big O organization has a nefarious plan called "Operation: Fallout." If this plan comes to fruition, Big O will explode an atomic bomb over Alamogordo, NM, and start WWIII.

Woven (almost literally) through the opening credits are three cleverly staged striptease dances by Mary Jane Mangler (brunette in blue), Larri Thomas (blond in white), and 'guest star' Cyd Charisse in red (who also performs the title number, voice dubbed by Vikki Carr).

I'm a Dean Martin fan so I may be biased but I really enjoyed this goofy spy parody. Martin parodies not only the Bond genre but also his own character as a super suave playboy. However, I would have to say that the real mastery of this kind of spoof would still be found in the "Our Man Flint" movies with James Coburn. There wit is a bit sharper and their humor is over-the-top without being quite so goofy.
