British secret service hires a liquidator who, being useless at his job terminating people, decides to subcontract out. SJ
Now here's a curiosity, I used to go out with a girl called Jill, in North London, in the mid 50's, who bears the same first name, and a striking resemblance to the star of this picture. Coincidence? I wonder. This film was made in the mid 60's. JT.
