One of my favorite movies from the 1960's is Deadler Than The Male. The spy spoof, released in 1967, stars Richard Johnson as Bulldog Drummond. I won't give anything away for those who haven't seen this film. Drummond's an insurance investigator trying to figure out what happened in the mysterious death of an oil executive. There is quite a lot of murder and intrigue on his mission. He discovers that beautiful female assassins (played by Elke Sommer and Sylvia Koscina) are employed by a madman (played by Nigel Green) who is trying to take over the oil industry. I'll leave it at that. One neat thing is that Elke Sommer and Nigel Green would go on to co-star in the Matt Helm spy spoof The Wrecking Crew in 1969. Besides the pictures I've posted here, I'm also including some clips. I hope you'll check them out. I'm sure you'll enjoy them.
