In this spy spoof and thriller, director Guy Hamilton seeks to renew the success he had with the James Bond thriller Goldfinger. The story (based on a novel by James Hadley Chase) concerns the efforts of the genial and deceptively tentative Lepski (Michael Brandon), an insurance company detective, to track down a valuable medieval Russian icon, which was stolen by Bradley (David Carradine), a master thief.
