The title character is a vicious villainess who commands a Thought Factory in the Scottish Highlands. Intent on achieving world domination, she kidnaps ex-CIA agent Anthony Lawrence and forces him to help her hijack a secret nuclear weapon, the Polaris submarine.
The film was originally a pilot for a weekly ABC series that failed to make the network's schedule. It was broadcast in the United States on 15 January 1972 and then released in other markets as a feature film.
Time Out London said, "Lots of exotic sets and outlandish secret weapons, just a pity it's all rather old hat Bond stuff. Still, with Denholm Elliott giving sterling support as her sycophantic aide, Davis has a ball with some genuinely monstrous lines."
