When her doctor recommends that a widow pursue her unfulfilled life ambitions, he doesn't realize that she has always wanted to be a spy. Sending a letter to her Representative gets her an interview with the C.I.A. and accidentally gets her an assignment to Morocco for a supposedly easy task of picking up an encrypted code book. When the agency realizes their mistake, they send a super-agent to watch over her. Both are taken prisoner and the real agent is injured, leaving Mrs. Emily Pollifax (Dame Angela Lansbury) to use her considerable wits to help them escape and to save the day. —John Sacksteder <firstname.lastname@example.org>
A drama/mystery with a twist.
I loved this movie. Although Angela Lansbury is not the Jessica Fletcher we know, she plays a similar role and is unrelenting in her endeavor to resolve this mystery. It is very interesting to see how her dream of being a government agent is realized through a comedy of errors. It is sometimes hard to determine who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. Is he trying to help Mrs. Polifax or help her out of his way? You eagerly await the end of the movie to find out what the plot is and who is involved in the evil deeds. A good drama/mystery that keeps you in suspense and sitting on the edge of your seat until the end of the movie.
