The Venetian Affair

This spy thriller has not the finest aim.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Promises the cover of 1968’s “The Venetian Affair” from Warner Archive, “Murder! Spies! Women!” They left off “Disappointment!” Released in conjunction with a multi-disc set of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” feature films, the film stars Napoleon Solo himself, Robert Vaughn, but as ex-spy Bill Fenner, and with the espionage exploits as straight and bleak as “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.”

The Liquidator

Makes a small splash, but you won't die laughing.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of many spy flicks released amid the height of the 007 craze, 1965's The Liquidator may look and sound like a James Bond imitator — what with a winning animated credits sequence set to a Lalo Schifrin song belted out by Shirley Bassey — but it's actually a spoof, as quickly becomes clear.
