Action-packed espionage thriller based on a book by Mickey Spillane. A man who has been framed for a large-scale robbery escapes from prison, but is caught and given a choice between returning behind bars and working for the CIA. He is enlisted to rescue a scientist from a dictator-run island, disguised as a drug dealer with another agent posing as his wife, while simultaneously plotting to prove his innocence.
A seldom seen gem in dire need of a remastered re-release to DVD.
I will not give away the plot of the film, but I will say that if you are a fan of any of the major stars in this film and/or Mickey Spillane stories, you will get a kick out of seeing it. After viewing a nice full screen print, I can say that all the ingredients are there for a fine circa 1970 action/adventure flick, and even though it appears to have been made on a limited budget, the director did just fine with what he had in my opinion.
Christoper George and his co-stars including Diane McBain, Yvette Mimieux and Yvonne DeCarlo all put in fine work here, and the humor and sexual tension and pacing of the film make for a fun diversion.
This is highly recommended if you can find a copy.
