This was the final film in the Matt Helm series.

Hey pallies, our pal Mr. George Solana is a man true to his Dino-word. Here is the first installment of his vid caps for the last of the Matt Helm quartet..."The Wrecking Crew." My fav of this set of caps is the second...of our Dino viewin' some lovlies connected to the heist....loves when our great man says of the chicks..."I like his style, I really like his style."

To view these at Mr. Solana's pad, "Cinema Vortex," just click on the tagg of this Dino-gram. As we begin our second half of celebratin' Dino-amore-month, we thanks George for showin' such devoted Dino-love to helps spread the Dino-message as a true Dino-devotee and true Helmer!!! More Dino-action from Salona soon. Dino-addictedly, DMP

Matt Helm

Wrecking Crew (1969)
Directed by Phil Karlson
Screenplay by William P. McGivern
Starring Dean Martin for the last time as Matt Helm
Elke Sommer
Sharon Tate (in one of her last roles)
Nancy Kwan
Nigel Green
Chuck Norris (His first film role)
Tina Louise
John Larch

This was the final film in the Matt Helm series. Although plans were afoot for a fifth film ("The Ravagers"), as well as a proposed teaming with Frank Sinatra for "Matt Helm Meets Tony Rome", the poor box-office showing of both "The Wrecking Crew" and Sinatra's second go round as Rome in "Lady In Cement" brought the Matt Helm series to an end.
