A standard kidnaping plot is used as an excuse to display some dazzling hang gliding exploits and the scenic beauty of Greece. When the wealthy Culp's wife, York, and two children are kidnaped by a group of crazed political anarchists, Culp asks York's ex-husband, Coburn, for assistance.

The latter develops a scheme using hang glider experts to raid the Greek mountain where York is being held captive. The raid is pulled off successfully and gives Coburn a chance to display some incredible heroics, such as hanging from the wing of a glider. For a change Coburn is actually called

upon to do some acting in connection with the emotional and sexual tensions between him and York. He also performed some dangerous stunts by himself. But the plot is little more than formula, with any sympathy generated the result of the extremely flat depiction of the kidnapers. A minor scandal

arose when a Greek electrician was killed while working on this feature.
