Synopsis

Espionage in Tangiers
Secret Agent 077 (read that carefully!) is back on the scene when a high-tech weapon goes missing in this spy thriller. Professor Graff (Alfonso Rojas) is a scientist working with the International Atomic Energy Agency when he comes up with a powerful innovation in defense technology -- a molecular disintegration ray that can make objects instantly disappear. The works for Graff's disintegration ray are contained in a small metallic plate, and not long after he demonstrates the weapon for the first time, it's stolen by a team of masked martial arts experts. Globetrotting super spy Mike Murphy (played by Luis Dávila, and named Marc Mato in the Spanish language prints) is called in to find the plate before it can fall into the wrong hands, and when he's not busy romancing beautiful women, Murphy tracks the valuable gizmo to Rigo Orie (Alberto Dalbes), a suave thief with no scruples and an appetite for money and danger. However, things become complicated when several buyers begin vying for the deadly ray, and Mike has to find out not only who has the plate, but who is willing to pay the price for its power. An Italian and Spanish co-production helmed by a Greek director, Espionage In Tangiers (ala Marc Mato, Agente S. 077) features a brief appearance from George Lazenby; it was Lazenby's film debut, four years before he would play the ultimate super-spy, James Bond, in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Assassination in Rome
Danger and romance are in plentiful supply in one of Europe's most beautiful cities in this sophisticated thriller. Shelley North (Cyd Charisse) is an American tourist who has come to Rome on a vacation with her husband. When he disappears without warning, Shelley visits the American embassy in search of help; word of Shelley's dilemma makes its way to Dick Sherman (Hugh O'Brian), an American expatriate who edits an English-language newspaper in Rome and once had a fling with Shelley when they were single and living in the States. Dick offers to help Shelley find her husband, and recruits a friend to help -- one of the top homicide detectives in Italy. When the missing American's name pops up in the address book of a criminal who has turned up dead, Shelley and Dick are drawn into a web of drug smuggling, organized crime, and international espionage, with allies and enemies shifting sides over the course of the investigation. Assassination in Rome (aka Assassinio Made in Italy and Il Segreto del Vestito Rosso) was shot in Italy using a local cast and crew, with Charisse and O'Brian added to give the project greater international box-office clout. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
