The (?) in the summary means that this flick sits awkwardly between two chairs, the straight spy flick and the spoof, being neither exciting enough nor funny enough to succeed as either. There is one novel idea (the inside of a truck disguised as a submarine!), a fairly impressive tank. vs car collision (hint: it doesn't go well for the car), and the otherwordly beauty of Diana Lorys, but the male lead is just passable and the script is often sloppy in its flow. Apparently this is the third Charles Vine film made in the 1960s, the earlier two are pretty hard to track down, but when I do, hopefully they will be better than this one! *1/2 out of 4.
