Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Reluctant Spy is a title that could have been applied to any number of espionage spoofs in the 1960s. This French film stars Jean Marais in the title role. Though he wants no part of espionage at first, Marais begins to enjoy the excitement, and soon he's comporting himself like a Gallic James Bond. The luscious Genevieve Page provides the requisite pulchritude. At the time Reluctant Spy was released, Jean Marais was considered the Grey Eminence of swashbuckers; still, he runs rings around many of his younger costars.
