CIA Secret Agent 077 Dick Malloy (Ken Clark) 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 genuine, the man is killed before he can reveal how he acquired the dog tag from the ocean floor.
British Agent 006 must recover a powerful super technology called “anti-radar”; his fellow American Agent 008 follows him because she suspects something sinister. After Agent 006 is able to recover the original plans of the machine in a journey from Switzerland to Egypt, agent 008 discovers that 006 is actually a Russian spy …
International Rescue scientist and inventor Brains (David Graham) creates a high-tech airship, dubbed Skyship One, designed to circle the world. On its maiden launch, villains hijack the aircraft.
Ken Clark stars as Dick Hallan, a journalist for the Herald-Tribune gets mixed up in international politics through a series of incredible coincidences and is finally coerced by the CIA (not really) to follow the intrigue to its unremarkable end.
A journalist is saved by a giant submarine captained by a 200 year old man who takes him to an underwater paradise city where no one ages. That’s when monsters and mutants sent by the captain’s rival, a 200 year old scientist, attack.

The film begins with a pre-credit sequence in which a group of unnamed terrorists have parked a vehicle containing a guided missile pointed straight at the Palace of Westminster whilst politicians are heard on the film’s soundtrack. They are thwarted by a group of older women in a tour group who turn out to be cross-dressing commandos who eliminate the terrorists with sub-machine guns and grenades. They are led by Agent Charles Vine with his second-in-command being Lt. Guy Fawkes who has saved the Parliament of England.
The film proper begins with the Royal Air Force testing a secret light-weight metal called “Spurium” that enables nuclear aircraft to fly. An unnamed sinister organisation led by a man named Angel hijacks the DC-3 aircraft by hypnotising the RAF Regiment guards and flying the plane to another location but they are shot down by the RAF.
Afraid the incident may happen again, Vine is assigned as security to the project. However Angel’s organisation kidnap Vine and replace him with one of their own men named Seraph. Obtaining information before he escapes allows Seraph to steal a sample of Spurium to be sold to the Soviet Union; however the Russians believe he is double-crossing them and kill him.
Vine escapes and reports to the RAF airbase, where he meets his RAF counterpart, Flight Lieutenant Felicity “Fiz” Moonlight. Angel’s men try an all-out assault on the airfield to capture the next nuclear aircraft set to fly. Vine and Angel end up in the nuclear aircraft that takes flight but Vine is rescued by F/L Moonlight.
