Storyline

In southern Spain with a U.S. team, skydiver Fathom Harvill (Raquel Welch) is approached by Colonel Douglas Campbell (Ronald Fraser), who is working for a top-secret Western agency. He's after a vital lost atomic device, and wants her to parachute into a house occupied by some Red Chinese Agents to help get the thing back. Apart from all of this, there is a predatory continental doctor on his yacht to take account of. Fathom soon realizes nothing is what it seems to be. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

User Reviews

 
Raquel at her best.
10 June 2002 | by Matt the catSee all my reviews

This is the quintessential Raquel Welch movie. In her most beautiful prime (27) and in a plot that allows for many opportunities to display that beauty, she shows why she was the ultimate sex symbol of the sixties, and, for many of us, of all time. Most of her films never fully captured her incredible appeal; this one does!
