for some reason or another I have been searching for a copy this film to view for a long enough time to say i am embarrassed to admit to.
it is a Spy Spoof starring Paul Mantee (from Robinson Crusoe on Mars) Terry (Mrs Howard Hughes) Moore and as a Mad Scientist Nazi War Criminal comedian Jan Murray........Plus the Soundtrack was composed and performed by Steve Allen (yes with a lineup like this you now can possibly understand my obsession)
it rarely shows on television for one reason or another is an MGM film ......TCM lists it.......but other than that nada.
I missed an auction for a 16mm print on Ebay for it.....
they have even released the original soundtrack on CD with 40 minutes of bonus material...
which boggles my mind even more......
Anyone have a copy they want to part with or knows of someone that does......and you would be helping me cross off something else on my bucket list......
thank you fellow board members.
yes the trailer is on you tube.....watch it you will either go screaming into the night or fall under its mind numbing control lol

Dagger is one of those movies I probably shouldn't try to track down. It was among the first movies I saw on my own, in a recently built neighborhood theater that I could reach by bicycle in ten minutes. In 1967 I would have been 14 and just beginning high school. A bunch of my classmates and I decided to see this. I'd seen Terry Moore before on TV in Mighty Joe Young, but she seemed a whole lot sexier in Dagger, and I was paying attention to such things back then. I doubt the movie holds up, though, and some memories are too precious to disturb.
