Nuts and bolts spy story
This is a low-to-the-ground espionage story shot in the style before James Bond made the splash heard 'round the world in Dr. No, even though it was made two years later. The simple story, about a stolen nuclear rocket propellant called the SR 712, is told in a nuts-and-bolts manner and the low key hero will barely register on those brought up on the larger than life Bond.
Director Maurice Labro went on to make the much more entertaining Code Name Jaguar (65) with Ray Danton. Let's just say that skipping The Spy I Love will not cause you too much remorse.
