Audience Reviews for Deadlier Than the Male
I'm a huge fan of the "Bulldog Drummond" series from the thirties and this is the first of two updatings of the character made in the sixties. I also love trashy sixties movies, in fact to me Sixties cinema is all about hot Euro-chicks, Hammer monsters, and Elvis churning out B-musicals. So why didn't I enjoy this? Well strange as it may seem it just takes itself far too seriously. Give me the tongue in cheek tone of "The Man From Uncle" anyday. Richard Johnson is well cast though as Drummond; he had rather unwisely turned down the role of James Bond for "Dr. No".
This is an excellent Eurospy movie, I thought this was going to be about female spy's but in turn its about the spy Bulldog Drummond and his stopping the assignation of a middle east oil baron, yes even in 1967 oil in the middle east was a big thing. Lots of neat spy stuff, like exploding cigar. Elke Sommer is beautiful as counter agent bad girl, and Richard Johnson plays an excellent Bulldog Drummon, only wished he did more films in this role. 4 stars
