Very flashy, very Swinging Sixties, romcom caper, which shares a suspicious amount of its plot with James Bond novel Casino Royale, as playboy cardsharp Barney Lincoln (Warren Beatty) is recruited to bring down drugs kingpin Harry Dominion (Eric Porter) at a poker game.

Set in London and the French Riviera, the film is largely studio bound, but finds a couple of practical locations in the posh area of Hampstead, northwest London.
