The Wrecking Crew, released in December, 1968, and starring Dean Martin, Elke Sommer, Nancy Kwan, Tina Louise, and Sharon Tate, is the fourth and final film in a series of American comedy-spy-fi theatrical releases featuring Martin as secret agent Matt Helm. As with the previous three Helm spy movies (The Silencers, Murderers' Row, and The Ambushers), it is based only loosely upon Donald Hamilton's 1960 novel of the same title and takes great liberties with the plot and characters, being developed as a spoof of the James Bond films. The Wrecking Crew was the second Helm novel published and the earliest of the books to be adapted. Chuck Norris makes his film debut in a small role. This was the last film of Tate's to be released before her murder at the hands of Charles Manson's followers on August 9, 1969.
