Andrews keeps his eye out for Uncle Sam
6 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Dana Andrews was one of those second rank movie stars who was finding roles becoming scarce in the USA and went to Europe for work. He's top billed and the title character in Spy In Your Eye, but the action and possible romance are left to Brett Halsey and Pier Angeli.

Halsey is given the assignment to bring out from behind the Iron Curtain Pier Angeli who is the son of a scientist who's been doing all kinds of work before he died in lasers developing that death ray gun the tool of so many futuristic space heroes like Flash Gordon and Rocky Jones.

In the meantime Andrews has sacrificed for God and country one of his eyes. But not to worry Dana has had a bionic eye installed which not only makes him see better, but it transmits video when needed. When the Reds start pirating his eye broadcasts things go wildly wrong for our intelligence before they're set right. Lee Majors never had these problems.

This is James Bond type stuff on the cheap. The film is also badly edited and you have to read between the lines a lot to figure out what's going on.

One thing though a lot of European and Mid Eastern cities were used for location shooting. On travel the budget did not stint.

James Bond this is not.
