Sixties Spy Style.

The Wilson Lewes Trio had four LP’s, I think, each a compilation of their takes on popular movie theme songs. I don’t know if this kitschy 1966 album with the themes from Dean Martin’s The Silencers and James Coburn’s Our Man Flint was even remotely listenable. But the two well-armed assassins look formidable enough – and suitably swinging sixties-ish – to take on playboy photographer Matt Helm and former Z.O.W.I.E (Zonal Organization World Intelligence Espionage) spy Derek Flint.

    1. Agreed. The Matt Helm films are sillier than the Flint movies (which are still pretty silly, mind you), and 50+ years after they were made, that silliness makes them more watchable. I lucked out quite some time ago with a used bookstore “Matt Helm Lounge” 4-film DVD set for chump change, which may be more Matt Helm than anyone needs.
