The Dolly Dolly Spy (1968)

Produced by Stanley Canter and Desmond Elliot
David Hemmings as Philip MacAlpine

Sorry folks! This is a red herring. The Dolly Dolly Spy project fell through. Author Adam Diment wrote a series of novels featuring swinging secret agent Philip MacAlpine. The Dolly Dolly Spy, The Bang Bang Birds, The Great Spy Race, and Think Inc. were amongst his output. But I was intrigued by the blurb of The Thriller Book Club edition of The Bang Bang Birds (1968), which had this to say:

‘At present The Dolly Dolly Spy is being filmed starring David Hemmings as Philip McAlpine. A Stanley Canter / Desmond Elliot production for release by United Artists, Trans America Corporation.’

I can find no other information on this project. Did filming, in fact start? Did the name change? Did another actor take over the lead role. I have no idea, but would dearly like to find out!
