Mission Highly Unlikely: 5 Adults in an Aston Martin Coupe
13 April 2017 | by MarqymarquisSee all my reviews

Mission Impossible 1/6 Odds On Evil The impossible mission here isn't getting Rollin Hand to dupe a Baccarat playing card sharping despot into losing $1.5 million dollars, but a getaway plan of five adults including well built Martin Landau and very well built Peter Lupus into an Aston Martin DB6 (in red, with embassy insignia) Barbara Bain is among the five escapees - her fur coat lined with of all those Yankee dollars - and - as this is 1966 - her coat is almost certainly constructed from the pelts of assassinated wildlife. So there we have it: Politics made possible by political incorrectness - to quote someone else: "it is an irony worthy of Chekov"
