Side note about the score: it's credited to Riz Ortolani, but there are some 'futuristic' cues in the early going that I swear must have been composed by Alberto Lavagnino.
Ever wondered what Dana Andrews would look like in a keffiyeh? Never seen kidnapping victims transported in giant size toothpaste tubes? Amused by hunchbacks with retractable knives in their hunches? Got a hankering for animatronic statues of Napoleon that can kill? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, Spy In Your Eye is the film you've been waiting for all your life. Andrews plays a spy boss with a video camera installed in his left eye socket, but his character is actually peripheral to that of secret agent Brett Halsey, who's assigned to rescue the daughter (Pier Angeli) of an East German scientist. The commies (Soviet and Chinese) are also on her tail, as she possesses a valuable formula discovered by her late, Nobel-prize winning father. The action is plentiful, there's lots of impressive location photography (Berlin, Paris, Beirut).
