O.K. Yevtushenko (1968, SPA) C-80m. * D: José Luis Madrid. Starring Tom Adams, Tim Barrett, Diana Lorys, Maria Silva, Bernabe Barta Barri, Angel Menéndez, Ingrid Thulin. Secret agent Charles Vine is assigned to investigate kidnapping of Russian spy, realizes that it's the Chinese and Albanians (!) who are behind it. Totally unspectacular, unappealing, this has not aged well. Third part in a trilogy of spy movies, following (the British) LICENSED TO KILL (1965) and WHERE THE BULLETS FLY (1966). Original version might run longer. English title: SOMEBODY'S STOLEN OUR RUSSIAN SPY.
