Writers: Herbert Baker (screenplay), Donald Hamilton (novel)
Stars: Dean Martin, Ann-Margret and Karl Malden
Number two in the Matt Helm collection. A slightly toasty Dean Martin (are you surprised?) plays secret agent Matt Helm, the man with wacky gun, penchant for cocktails, and pretty ladies always by his side (or with a gun to his back). I love, love, love the crazy fashion in the Matt Helm films and I especially love miss Ann-Margret as the frantic gogo dancing "Helm Girl" in this film. She oozes adorable just as I'm sure Deano was oozing gin for sweat. The bad guy has a metal skull plate and Karl Malden is as wormy as ever the super bad bad guy. I want Matt Helms bar.
