CIA Secret Agent 077 Dick Malloy is sent to Madrid when someone wishes to sell a dog tag apparently recovered from the sunken American nuclear submarine USS Thresher. Once the item is identified as a genuine article, the man selling the information is killed before he can reveal how he acquired the dog tag from the ocean floor. Malloy and his boss Heston interview the Howard Hughes type marine salvage multi-millionaire Zoltan in order to determine whether the wreck of the submarine could be accessed. Zoltan denies it is possible but Heston and Malloy do not believe Zoltan is telling the truth.

Using an advanced bathysphere, Malloy travels to the site of the remains of the Thresher and discovers that the 16 Polaris missiles with nuclear warheads carried by the submarine are missing.

This is the third and last of the Secret Agent 077 film series starring Ken Clark as 077

Following a pursuit and gun battle, they escape by helicopter which lands on a submarine and is discarded as the submarine submerges. When Agent Bart Fargo was about to go on vacation, he is given the assignment, by his boss, of retrieving the death ray and saving the scientist. He travels to Barcelona on a lead to find an evil organization that may be behind this. Rooting out a nest of spies in an ever-enclosing trail, Fargo meets a lady when he hides in her house from the opposition and befriends an enemy agent who later helps him to stop the evil organization.

7 Golden Women Against Two 07 (1966)


7 GOLDEN WOMEN AGAINST TWO 07 (1966)


7 donne d’oro contro due 07 (original title)

7 Golden Women Against Two 07 (Worldwide)
Sette donne d’oro contro due 07 (Italy)

1966 Italy
Direction: Vincenzo Cascino (who also plays the villain Barbikan)
Actors: Mickey Hargitay, Maria Vincent, Luciana Paoli

Former Mr. Universe and Mr. Jayne Mansfield, Mickey Hargitay plays Mark Davis, secret agent Two 07. He’s on a mission to locate a Nazi treasure hidden in the Mediterranean by Martin Bormann. The location of the treasure is hidden in a Goya painting. The only problem is, seven identical replicas of the painting were sold at auction to seven “beautiful” women, each hoping against hope that theirs is the real McCoy. Cue the obligatory catfights…

Of course, even though the film is titled 7 Golden Women Against Two 07, these eight principals aren’t the only ones after the treasure. Leading the pack of also-rans is the writer-director-producer-editor-and-star Vincenzo Cascino as Barbikian. There’s no explanation as to why he’s painting them gold and the only justification is it looked good on Shirley Eaton.
