Fathom (1967), starring Raquel Welch, Anthony Franciosa

Fathom is supposed to be a parody of the spy genre.  However, it isn’t.  It’s simply an excuse for the shapely Raquel Welch to change from a red swimsuit to a skydiving suit to a lime bikini, skin-tight outfit with cleavage window, to another swimsuit.

Raquel Welch may have become an actress, but there’s no evidence of her acting ability here.  Her performances are wooden.  The plot of the movie deals with her playing Fathom (an odd name that gets played with multiple times).  She’s a sky diver, who’s talked into helping one person to retrieve a nuclear device.  Which turns into a stolen Chinese artifact, according to a second person.  Then a third.

Unless you’re a fan of watching Raquel Welch in a swimsuit, you can safely ignore this movie.
