| Bemusing and entertaining Euro-spy spoof with two of the biggest comedy actors : José Luis López Vázquez and Gracita Morales
Hipólita: Gracita Morales , is an ugly Cabaret woman with no much success . Hipolita meets Daniel, Jose Luis López Vázquez , a travelling salesman who sells joke ítems , she draws him to a sucession of pursues , crashes , fights and intrigues . As Hipólita becomes involved in problems with a pursued Chinese spy, who puts into her purse a microfilm that other powerful and international spies : Tomás Blanco, attempt to take it . Along the way there takes place a series of incidents including the corpse of a dead Chinese , shootouts , kidnapping , blackmails and many others .

This is a José Luis López Vázquez and Gracita Morales vehicle in which they show their hilarious , comical skills . It deals with a so-so parody to Euro-spy subgenre that was usual in the Sixties , from the successful James Bond films as Doctor No , From Russia with love or Goldfinger . In the Euro-spy genre was habitual twisted intrigues about atomic threats , microfilms, spectacular chases and anything else . Hightlights of the movie are the amusing musical acting at the cabaret or when the unattractive Hipólita/Gracita Morales imitates a famous song of Rafael , as well as the final pursuit on the water skiing , as while being pursued they are shooting with their machine guns . These two greatest comical actors , Gracita Morales and José Luis López Vázquez give a fun recital of their funny abilities , they are well accompanied by various known secondaries , such as : Mara Cruz , Marisol Ayuso, Tomás Blanco, Enrique Ávila, Goyo Lebrero , Felix Dafauce, Paloma Cela , Xan Das Bolas and Antonio Ozores.
