High Season for Spies
High Season for Spies is a 1966 Eurospy film directed by Julio Coll and starring Antonio Vilar, Letícia Román and Peter van Eyck. It was made as a co-production between Portugal, Spain and West Germany. The film's action takes place around Lisbon, and concerns attempts by various secret agents to steal a formula.
In Lisbon, Professor Zandor developed a groundbreaking formula on behalf of the industrialist Bardot: He succeeded in producing a steel mixture that is completely bulletproof and, as a result, makes conventional weapons ineffective. In doing so, he gets all kinds of agents from different countries on their toes, but also crooks who are not only after the formula for the fantastic alloy, but also after Professor Z himself. One day, the brilliant scientist is kidnapped straight from his laboratory, and those present, Ellen Green, Zandor's assistant, and Mr. Bardot himself, are witnesses. Zandors client now fears that the groundbreaking formula could be leaked to a foreign power. The most important nations then send their best people to the Portuguese capital, including Jack Haskins from the USA and Pierre Genet from France. Both men have known each other for some time and sometimes cooperate, but have also appeared as competitors.
