Madame Sin (1972)

Directed by David Greene
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Timeless Media Group)

Robert Wagner is an ex-CIA agent kidnapped and brought to a remote Scottish island where Bette Davis runs a secret organization of scientists. Among other things, they have developed a way to extend life and erase memories using a giant, disembodied brain. They force Wagner to kidnap an old Navy colleague in order to steal a nuclear submarine and sell it to revolutionaries. Catherine Schell pops up as an old girlfriend he thought was dead. The cast almost makes it worthwhile, but outlandish plot sinks it. Bette, in heavy makeup, milks her role for everything it's worth. Pilot for a failed tv series.
