Murderers’ Row (1966)

In this sequel to The Silencers (1966), Dean Martin returns as secret agent Matt Helm to save Washington from dastardly Karl Malden and his “Helio Beam”.

Martin’s “morning after the night before” performance has a certain louche appeal, but, like any self-respecting Bond rip-off, Harry Levin’s film has problems spoofing a spoof.

Based on the novel by Donald Hamilton, the plot is remarkably similar to Thunderball (1965).
