Matt Helm

One of my favorite Spy film series was the Matt Helm films starring Dean Martin. They made 4 of them and a 5th was planned until Dean pulled the plug on it. Here's a few (ok 5, seems i can only post 5 pics to a post) of the first and best Matt Helm film, The Silencers. A wonderful tongue in cheek script and a great cast and i think Stella Stevens was the best Helm girl.

  1. Hey pallie, likes glads to meet 'nother Helmer...never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool....oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth...gotta 'fess up that my fav of the Dino-quartet is numero duo..."Murders' Row" and thus it follows that my fav Helm chick is Miss Ann-Margret...

  2. Nice to meet another fan of the real King of Cool.
    I wish Dino had made more Helm films.
