      Comments about Where The Spies Are (1966) (MOD):

      WHERE THE SPIES ARE, COMING IN THE MIDST OF THE 007 PHENOMENON, IS, IN FACT, A SPY THRILLER IN THE HITCHCOCKIAN MOLD. COUNTRY DOCTOR DAVID NIVEN IS MANEUVERED BY SPY CHIEF JOHN LESMESURIER TO TRAVEL TO BEIRUT UNDER THE GUISE OF ATTENDING A MALARIA CONFERENCE, TO DISCOVER WHAT HAPPENED TO RESIDENT SPY CYRIL CUSACK. WITH A STOPOVER IN ROME AND THE DISCOVERY FEMME MODEL FRANCOISE DORLEAC, NIVEN ENCOUNTERS SOVIET SPY MOGUL RONALD RADD, OPERATIVE PAUL STASSINO, THE MYSTERY OF AN AEROFLOT PEACE FLIGHT AND THE PLANNED ASSASSINATION OF A PRO-WESTERN OIL SHIEK. DIRECTOR VAL GUEST LAUNCHES NIVEN INTO ONE COMPELLING SITUATION AFTER ANOTHER, ESPECIALLY WITH THE LURE OF A VINTAGE CORD AND THE EXOTIC INTRIGUES OF BEIRUT, AND INTO THE FROZEN NORTH FOR A MEMORABLE CLIMAX. DECIDEDLY ONE OF DAVID NIVEN'S BEST FILMS, HE WOULD LATER ALLY WITH GUEST ON THE 1967 FILM VERSION OF CASINO ROYALE. NOEL HARRISON IS EFFECTIVE AS LEMESURIER'S AIDE.

        Comments about Where The Spies Are (1966) (MOD):

        RELEASED IN THE MIDST OF THE SPY BOOM, WHERE THE SPIES ARE IS ACTUALLY A DISTINCT THROWBACK TO THE TYPE OF THRILLER MORE IN THE HITCHCOCKIAN MOLD. COUNTRY DOCTOR DAVID NIVEN IS MANEUVERED INTO A SPY MISSION BY SPY CHIEF JOHN LEMESURIER INVOLVING INTRIGUES IN BEIRUT-WITH A VINTAGE CORD THE ULTIMATE LURE TO NIVEN. ENCOUNTERING MYSTERY FEMME FRANCOISE DORLEAC, FOREIGN OPERATIVES RONALD RADD AND PAUL STASSINO--WITH SOME WHITEHALL AIDE FROM NOEL HARRISON, WHERE THE SPIES ARE - BASED ON JAMES LEASOR'S PASSPORT TO OBLIVION - IS ONE INTRIGUING TWIST AFTER ANOTHER, LEAVING THE AUDIENCE THRILLED FOR THE NEXT DIVERSION. DIRECTED BY VAL GUEST - WHO LATER TEAMED WITH DAVID NIVEN ON 1967'S CASINO ROYALE AND ASSIGNMENT K STARRING STEPHEN BOYD THIS IS AN UNDISPUTED SPY GEM WITH ONLY THE OCCASIONAL SHOWING ON TCM. FILMED IN LATE 1964, BUT NOT RELEASED UNTIL EARLY 1966, WHERE THE SPIES ARE WAS TO HAVE BEEN A SERIES ENTRY, BUT ULTIMATELY UNREALIZED IN THE SPY-INTRIGUE MOSAIC OF THE 1960S. ONE OF DAVID NIVEN'S BEST FILMS, WITH SOME BREATHTAKING BEIRUT LOCALES TO SPICE UP THIS INTRIGUING ESPIONAGE MIX.
