The Ambushers (1967)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Ambushers (1967) A flying saucer built by the U.S. government is launched into space on a top secret test flight. Due to some unknown reason, the saucer can only be piloted by a woman (male test pilots died of radiation poisoning). Sheila Sommars is the pilot chosen and all goes well until Jose Ortega, an exiled ruler for an outlaw nation, uses a secret remote control device to cause the ship to land at his secret base in Mexico. Ortega then rapes Sheila and leaves her for dead only to be found a few months later in a state of shock. Agent Matt Helm is then assigned to find the saucer, with Sheila posing as his wife. When he gets to Mexico, he must not only deal with Ortega and his henchman Quintana, but with enemy agent Fracesca Madeiros (an operative for Helm's main nemesis Big O) and an Arab agent/assassin named Nassim.

  • Matt Helm rides again! ...with the Ambushers on his back, and some fun on the side!
Movie Quote(s):
  • [I.C.E. agents are receiving instruction on the latest equipment] Female Instructor: [holding ray gun] This little gadget here dissolves metal electronically. Easy to conceal, extremely effective in times of danger. [She points the gun and dissolves the belt buckle off a clothed mannequin. His pants fall to the ground] First female student: That's when the danger usually starts! Second female student: [seductively] I like my way better!
  • [Matt is shown a new weapon which gives a whole new meaning to the term "bullet bra"] Linda: It's not a gun, Mr. Helm. It's the new weapon they gave me, developed right here in our labs. Matt Helm: Developed pretty well, too! Linda: May I point out... Matt Helm: You already do! Linda: ...that that's why you're here. To become familiar with our latest equipment. Matt Helm: You right. An agent should always keep *abreast* of the times!
  • [Matt and Sheila are hiding on a mountain-top] Matt Helm: We have a long wait ahead of us, so let's get comfortable. [lies down on his back] Sheila Sommers: [lying down on top of Matt] How comfortable? Matt Helm: It's broad daylight! Sheila Sommers: What's the matter with a broad in the daylight?
  • Jose Ortega: [toasting] Cheers! Francesca Madeiros: [also toasting] Skol! Matt Helm: Sure it's cold. It's got ice in it.
  • [a new female recruit gets turned on by Frank Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night" playing in the background] Matt Helm: You really like Perry Como that much?
