In an era when Sean Connery Michael Caine James Coburn Dean Martin Robert Vaughn and more brought varying styles of secret-agent cool to movie screens along came one of the most unusual spies ever to enter the Top Secret realm of hush-hush bang-bang and kiss-kiss. Rod Taylor plays Boysie Oakes Agent L who enjoys the swinging-London lifestyle perks that come with espionage but would rather not engage in the squeamish business of killing so he hires a professional hitman for that part of the job. Of course events soon plunge Oakes into situations that require him to be a hero in spite of himself. Jack Cardiff directs this offbeat caper based on the John Gardner novel reuniting with the star he guided previously in Young Cassidy. The cast includes two beauties who would soon return to sexy subterfuge: Gabrielle Licudi in 1967's spoof Casino Royale and Jill St. John who played Tiffany Case in Diamonds Are Forever.

The plot, direction and dialogue are well done and the film transfer is very good, no doubt a result of it being filmed in Panavison.
As a teenager when this came out my fondest memory from this film is of the bar in Boysie Oakes flat. I wanted one of those for years.
Other notable roles for Mr. Taylor include, Dark of the Sun, Bearcats (short lived TV series), Fate is the Hunter, Giant and of course the original Time Machine.
When serious spy movies such as the Bond franchise seemed everywhere this move and "The Presidents Analyst" stand out to me as two great spy spoofs. Enjoy
