Hot Enough for June (1964)

This British spy comedy casts Dirk Bogarde as Nicholas Whistler, a work-shy would-be writer who is content with his life on the dole – until Colonel Cunliffe of British Intelligence (Robert Morley) chooses him to replace a deceased 007.

Being a Czech speaker, Nicholas is shipped off to Prague “on business” (actually for a spot of industrial espionage, though he doesn’t know that). While there, he falls for his beautiful driver, Vlasta (Sylvia Koscina), who is obviously (but not to him) a secret agent herself – and also the daughter of the chief of the Communist counter-espionage service (Leo McKern).

A great supporting cast includes Derek Nimmo, Derek Fowlds, John Le Mesurier, Roger Delgado and John Junkin.

Released in the US as Agent 8¾.
