Boysie Oakes (Rod Taylor) – codenamed “L” – is a reluctant secret agent assigned to dispose of known enemy agents, although he prefers conquest in the bedroom to violent action in this carbon-copy of Our Man Flint (1965) – 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.
The cast includes two beauties who would soon return to sexy subterfuge: Gabrielle Licudi in 1967’s spoof Casino Royale (1967) and Jill St. John, who played Tiffany Case in Diamonds Are Forever (1971).
Shirley Bassey sings the title theme.
