Burt Reynolds is Mark Andrews, a CIA agent sent to Saigon during the Vietnam War to investigate a fellow agent's murder. While snooping, Andrews stumbles onto a plot to kill the US ambassador. With the help of friendly female contact Kim-chinh (Kieu Chinh), he escapes from terrorist

kidnaper Professor Yen (Vic Diaz) and tries to prevent the ambassador's murder by a French double agent (Danielle Aubry). The only point of interest in this tepid espionage actioner (aside from the glimpse of early Reynolds) is that some of the footage was actually shot in Saigon just as the

American presence began to intensify. But even with authentic locations, the story is just too stock to maintain much interest. Dully directed by Christian Nyby, OPERATION CIA is further evidence for film auteurists that "producer" Howard Hawks really directed the excellent science-fiction film

THE THING (1951) and gave his protege Nyby the credit.
