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.
