Mrs Pollifax – Spy
<strong>Rating: </strong>4/5Rate this
Time Out saysWitless, worthless spy comedy about a middle-aged matron's enlistment in the CIA. Martinson, a long-time TV series toiler who'd provided the drive-in market in the '50s with such treats as Hot Rod Girl and Hot Rod Rumble, had recently had his head turned by the unaccustomed success of the big-screen Batman and similar spy-spoof material in the Raquel Welch-starring Fathom. Ros Russell, pseudonymously scripting as well as starring, was old enough to have known better, but did the honourable thing and retired immediately after.
