Movie Info

David Frazer (Cliff Robertson) is the down-and-out soldier of fortune hired by the British Foreign Office for a mission with retired Colonel Drexel (Jack Hawkins) in this spy spoof. Their mission is to kidnap the Middle Eastern Prince Jamil (Christopher Witty) and hold him for a few weeks until his 21st birthday so he can legally sign an oil trade agreement favorable to Britain. David is beaten by enemy secret agents posing as clowns in front of a capacity crowd under the big top. The duo also must wend their way through a dark, mysterious castle where danger lurks with every turn. Hawkins has obvious fun spoofing the stiff and proper Brit character he was often called on to play throughout his career.
