A key component for a deadly weapon is stolen, and secret agent Mike Murphy (Luis Davila) is sent to Tangiers to recover it. Once there, he is plunged almost immediately into deadly intrigue and murder. The secret device is up for sale, and the resourceful Murphy is off across the Mediterranean to Nice, on the trail of those looking to broker the deal.
Blending action, violence, humor, beautiful women, with some exotic locales, and decent cinematography, Espionage in Tangiers is a fast-paced Europspy adventure, that even with a few over the top elements, holds together well enough, keeping a hard edged bottom line. Murphy is a capable operative, who is almost constantly getting into a scuffle. Unfortunately, the ending in France is extremely lame, and nearly makes the entire journey a waste of time. George Lazenby supposedly made his debut in this film, and his name is listed on the DVD cover art. However, if Lazenby does appear in this version, it must be rather obscure.
Assassination in Rome (1967)
Dick Sherman (Hugh O'Brian) is a newspaperman who gets involved in a search for former girlfriend's (Cyd Charisse) missing husband. Sherman enlists the aid of a police detective friend, and begins to uncover curious circumstances surrounding the disappearance, including connections to a murder, drugs, gambling, and organized crime. The resolution features a twist that few might see coming. Presented in widescreen, this darkish tale is not a `must see', but may be worth a look for mystery fans.
Dark Sky Films has packaged these films with a drive in movie motif, which includes coming attractions movie trailers, food promos, and an intermission between features. Kind of fun, at least the first time around.
the viewer becomes completely disenchanted; perhaps the director was unwell during the filming in parts of this movie,or maybe didnt have control
over the final cut and it is such a shame.Even so, it is really worth watching for the locations,some very good acting by the support cast and some

It's amazing how films age. "Rome," the "good" movie in this double feature is teeth-grindingly dull while "Tangiers," the cheap 007 knockoff about the death ray, totally delivers. Read morePublished on October 26, 2007 by Kindle Customer
