Forgettable except for Rosanna Schiaffino
Here's a rather bland spy thriller that will pass before your eyes without making much of an impact. One would think that Stewart Granger would make a fine secret agent but he comes across as more of a jerk than anything else. The first time we see him, he's on vacation, sitting on his living room floor playing with his model train set that brings him his liquor. I guess that's appropriate somehow, the guy sitting home alone getting plastered. He certainly couldn't have many friends since he's condescending to everyone except pretty girls.
The film boasts a Riz Ortalani score but even that doesn't help much. If your cup of tea is to listen to Stewart Granger belittle the Chinese for using chopsticks then by all means, have at it.
