One thing that always amazes us about "death rays" in the movies is that they're usually invented "for the good of mankind." No such altruism surrounds the demon device in this film, which is stolen early on by terrorists. Unless the world powers meet their demands, the villains will unleash the ray on any and all comers. Sent to set things aright is secret agent Gordon Scott, who after all those Tarzan and gladiator films looks a bit uncomfortable in a dinner jacket. This "James Bond" clone made the US rounds in the mid-1960s, when local TV stations were running anything filmed in color.
