Plot Summary

There is an on-going battle of industrial espionage between rival cosmetics companies, Femina, owned by Sir Jason Fox, and May Fortune, owned by Matthew Cutter. Caught in the middle between the two are among others top industrial designer Patricia Foster, who officially is on May Fortune's payroll after being fired by Femina, and Christopher White, a suave Brit who also is officially on May Fortune's payroll as Cutter's right hand man. On the surface, Patricia is still working for Femina trying to steal the new top secret formula for a water repellent hairspray developed by Dr. Stuart Clancy for May Fortune, that hairspray which would make all other hairsprays obsolete, while Christopher secretly tries to stop her. Below the surface, it is not clear whether either Patricia or Christopher truly are working for May Fortune, Femina or someone else. But as they progress through these on the surface missions, their true missions are eventually revealed as are their true allegiances, which place both Patricia and Christopher in mortal danger with regard to a recent story of an Interpol agent being killed in the Swiss Alps.

Trivia In her autobiography, Doris Day wrote that this was one of her least favorite films, also citing The Ballad of Josie (1967), Do Not Disturb (1965), and Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? (1968), all films, to which her husband, Martin Melcher, signed her, without her consent. See more »
Goofs This is not really an error, as the Christopher character had just imitated Richard Burton, and she was referring to the actor. See more »

Crazy Credits Each screen of the opening credits is presented uniquely. The names of the leads appear in speech/thought bubbles of an extra. One page appears gradually as a walkie-talkie's antenna extends. Others fade in, slide in, are pulled from behind walls, appear with different clipart, etc. See more »
Quotes Patricia Foster: That phone is making me very nervous.
Christopher White: It is making me nervous too. Let me take you away from all this. I also have a room with no phone.
