Murderers’ Row (1966)

In this sequel to The Silencers (1966), Dean Martin returns as photographer-turned-secret agent Matt Helm to save Washington from dastardly Julian Wall (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).
