Matt Helm : Silencers (1966)
Take one shot of danger, two splashes of action and a twist of comedy and add a generous portion of screen legend Dean Martin to the mix and you've got The Silencers, a stylishly sexy adventure in the tradition of James Bond.
It's up to secret agent Matt Helm (Martin) to save the day when mascared megalomaniac Victor Bruno (What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?) and his dastardly organization, Big O, plot to sabotage America's atomic missile system. From deep inside Big O's subterranean hideout to a perilous mountainside car chase to groovy designer bedrooms filled with booby traps, Helm braves blistering showers of bullets, knives and laser beams to make the world a save place again. Helping his cause is a bevy of beauties including Stella Stevens (The Poseidon Adventure) and double agent Daliah Lavi (Casino Royale). In addition to its arsenal of high-tech gadgets and outrageous costumes, The Silencers features an amazing opening sequence starring Cyd Charisse (Singin' in the Rain) and a cocktail-era soundtrack by Elmer Bernstein with vocals by Martin, Charisse and Vikki Carr.
