_____________________

Kerwin Mathews ("The 7th Voyage of Sinbad") is both likeable and believable as French secret agent OSS 117, hot on the trail of the nefarious Dr. Sinn (Robert Hossein), who plots to purge mankind of its "inferior races" with a selective, specially designed virus.

Bangkok provides the exotic locale, Pier Angeli provides the pretty face, and a pit filled with disease-carrying rats provides white-knuckle tension in a key scene.

Directed and co-written by Andre Hunebelle. Also starring Dominique Wilms and Stuart Nesbitt.

Despite his talent and good looks, Kerwin Matthews never seemed to get worthy roles other than Sinbad in 1958. And yet he always turned in fine performances, even in third-rate features like "Battle Beneath the Earth" (1968) and "Octaman" (1971), the latter of which reunited him with "Shadow of Evil" co-star, Angeli.

If you speak French you'll enjoy this trailer even more than I did! It looks like one hellavu spy thrill, released the same year Goldfinger!

I'd love to see this movie.
