Roger Moore hits the swinging 60s as Gary Fenn, an advertising executive, a Lothario and a charmer.
A promotion for a major client backfires as the photo of his model gets switched. He now has to find a Hungarian model Marla Kugash (Claudia Lange). It is all a rouse to smoke Kugash out into the open so she could be killed.
Kugash's aunt is part of a shadowy group which is out to cause riots and destabilise the existing world order so they can take over themselves. Kugash knows too much of their plans which includes assassinating a visiting African dignitary.
This spy comedy caper quickly becomes too silly. Despite some action scenes such as a helicopter chase scene, it is also rather inert. Although comparisons are made with James Bond, a role Moore would later fill, this films has more of The Avengers dash about it.
However the shenanigans between Kugash and Fenn gets tedious and the plot is convoluted. Moore does turn on his easy charm though.
