Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
For fans of James Bond, Derek Flint, and especially Austin Powers, the Matt Helm Lounge makes a playful chaser. Powers may be groovy, baby, but Dean Martin's swinging photographer-cum-secret agent Helm is on-the-rocks cool, from the pop-up bar in his car to the lyrics Martin croons on the soundtrack during Helm's amorous encounters "If your sweetheart puts a pistol in your bed/You'd do better sleeping with your Uncle Fred". The Silencers 1966, Murderer's Row '66, The Ambushers '67, and The Wrecking Crew '69 are a catalog of guilty, politically incorrect pleasures. They're incorrigibly sexist, with double-entendres straight from the Playboy Party Jokes page. When Helm informs one model she will be posing as the Spirit of '76 in Murderer's Row, she replies, "Are you kidding? I'm only a 44." It just doesn't get more '60s than the Helm films, though the films' bare-bones production values made Helm the only secret agent to ever drive a station wagon. Murderer's Row features Ann-Margret in a go-go frenzy, a hit song by Dino, Desi, and Billy, and generation gap groaners like, "It's a wise son who knows his own father/The way they're wearing their hair these days, it's a wise father who knows his own son." The plots are a mixed cocktail of criminal masterminds Karl Malden in Murderer's Row, Victor Buono in Silencers and foiled world domination schemes, none to be taken too seriously. Of more prurient interest are the bevy of beautiful babes who grace each film, most memorably: Stella Stevens in The Silencers; Senta Berger and Janice Rule in The Ambushers; Elke Sommer, Nancy Kwan, Tina "Ginger" Louise, and Sharon Tate her last film appearance in Wrecking Crew. Helm's "Slaygirls" put Austin's Fembots to shame! These films are pretty much above or beneath critical comment, but with Dino at the Helm, this box set is a retro cocktail with a kick.

    Matt Helm

    I've always enjoyed Dean Martin's work.
    I'm old enough I remember the Martin and Lewis films, the Dean Martin varity show and of course the Rat Pack...
    These DVD's give an idea of how far special effect have come and of course some of the work in tongue in cheek.
    Anyone who remembers Dean Martin knows his public persona was not very serious. He liked to clown around and even when his charicter was in a jam he seldom took it seriously.
    If you enjoy Dean Martin and want some entertainment you don't have to use a lot of brain power to enjoy, you'll like the Matt Helm DVD's.

    matt helm - a great spy

    For the fun of it. That is what Matt Helm is all about. Pure entertainment was the reason the Matt Helm series was made. Dean Martin and his supporting cast in each of the 4 films did not disappoint. If you just need to sit back and relax while watching a movie, this set is for you.
    Funny and acted for laughs. Good looking girls did not detract from the plot at all.

    Campy Fun for Spy Fans

    The Matt Helm series starring Dean Martin is fun, 60's spy romp that doesn't take itself too seriously but stays enough on plot to be enjoyable.

    Unlike Bond, Helm is comfortable behind the wheel of a station wagon. With a martini in one hand and a girl in his arm Helm seems to charm himself out of danger.
