It was shot at the Billancourt Studios in Paris and on location around the city. The film's sets were designed by the art director René Moulaert.

For the last time Bernard Borderie directed the popular actor Eddie Constantine in a Lemmy Caution adventure.

Guy Delorme, who in 1961 had been the Comte de Rochefort in Borderie's classic film version of The Three Musketeers, acts another time as a scheming bad guy.

SynopsisEdit

Dr. Whitaker has disappeared after working hard on an innovation which could give either the West or the East an edge in the Cold War. Lemmy Caution, although currently otherwise busy, is assigned to return the scientist.

He is advised to start searching for him by finding in the first place Dr. Whitaker's attractive young fiancée Geraldine.

Of course Lemmy Caution finds the scientist, beats up the villains even while actually being hopelessly outnumbered, puts everything right and gets the girl.

CastEdit

ReceptionEdit

David Deal judges in "The Eurospy Guide" the film was "not an outright spoof", yet he objects director Bernard Borderie sporting slapstick moments ("silly") during the final showdown in a dairy.[5]
