The incredible Mrs. Pollifax...the intrepid Mrs. Pollifax...the delightful Mrs. Pollifax. Mrs. Pollifax the spy! And when dauntless, widowed Mrs. Pollifax the grandmother decides to embark on her long-longed-for career (she's pushing sixty), she goes right to the heart of things- the CIA. It's a case of on-the-spot typecasting as by a fluke she is sent to Mexico to make a simple pick-up as the typical tourist. Unfortunately she is picked up by the Chinese Communists and it's off to Albania where...? We won't spoil the fun, but it's very well done and Oh, Mrs. Pollifax, another case please!
