Paquita (Lina Romay) is a naive stripper (who might provide "other" services if the price is right) sent to coastal village Benidorm by her agency to perform at a club - but somehow, she's mistaken for a spy from that other "agency" (yup, the CIA) who's supposed to get a formula encoded in music from professor Von Klaus (Howard Vernon), and as a disguise she has to pose as a classical singer. She has no idea of this, and the fact that the Moronis, the couple running the club she's supposed to perform at is working for the other side doesn't make things easier. Paquita gets the first idea that something's not quite ok when Mariano (Juan Soler), the (CIA-)man who first contacted her and who she thought worked for the stripclub, turns up dead in her wardrobe, and the Moronis want things of her she has no idea of. Luckily, there's Carlos (Antonio Mayans), a friendly CIA-agent, who helps her through all kinds of hardship (and of course, the two fall in love over the course of the story), and eventually they even find the musica code - but not the professor, who has long bailed to some Arabian country. So now it's a race of Paquita and Carlos against the Moronis to find Von Klaus, the only one who could bring sense to the formula, first. Paquita and Carlos win that race, but Von Klaus has gone insane and tries to kill them - with the effect that they eventually have to throw him off a cliff to save their lives. Then the Moronis try to bomb them to kingdom come from a small airplane, but Paquita and Carlos somehow manage to throw one of the bombs back and blow up the Moronis' airplane. And they lived happily ever after ...

 

Certainly not the best Jess Franco film, and even despite the fact that one of the lead characters is a stripper/prostitute, there's very little sex and nudity involved - but still, it's a watchable movie, a light-hearted intrigue-and-espionage comedy that might not make much sense in purely logical terms but features quite a few hilarious scenes and Lina Romay once again proves her talent for comedy, and the tongue-in-cheek approach throughout helps through many narrative inconsistencies. On a directorial level though, the film is rather dull for the longest time, only in the scene where Paquita and Carlos face Von Klaus in some medieval ruins does show Jess Franco's eye for the extraordinary.

Well, not a masterpiece, but fun at least ...
