If you have a chance, you should really rent the movie “Madame Sin.” If for only because Bette Davis is serving up crazy paint-by-number face. IMDB describes it as:

“Bette Davis is Madame Sin, a sinister-looking, totally evil, half-Chinese woman who indulges in endless machinations. Ensocnced in a Scottish castle that is packed with an array of spy gadgetry, she runs afoul with counter spy, American CIA agent Anthony Lawrence (Robert Wagner), who is out to counter her plots for control of a Polaris submarine.”

I totally didn’t pick up on her being half-Chinese, just real bossy.  But I forgot that a heavy lid is as good as Chinese for Hollywood of that era.  Basically, this movie is what the Austin Powers movies are spoofing.
