Way back in 1964 the Carry on-team felt that it was time for a spoof of at the at the time so popular James Bond movies. For safety's sake came the movie also to make fun of film noirs, cold war paranoia and spy films in general.
It sounds more fun that it actually came out to be.
The beginning of the movie and the last parts is pinnacle Carry On tradition, but in the middle the movie is just treading water. Sad, because parts of this is really good.
Pinewood studios is made up to look like post-war Vienna, colonial Algiers and other strange places. There's even som music resembling the one from "the Third man" for some not so strange reason.
A delight as always to watch Kenneth Williams who is young and wild here and here we also see Barbara Windsor for the first time inb the Carry On saga. Every scene of her is about those two things on the front of her in one way or another.
