A Man Could Get Killed (1966) Directors: Ronald Neame, Cliff Owen Writers: Richard L. Breen (screenplay), T.E.B. Clarke (screenplay) Stars: James Garner, Melina Mercouri, Sandra Dee   This late-'60s spy spoof also borrows a page from late-'50s Alfred Hitchcock, with its everyday man becoming embroiled in the violent and baffling world of international espionage. When American businessman William Beddoes (James Garner) is traveling in Lisbon, he's mistaken for an English spy who's thought to possess a cache of industrial diamonds. Soon he is pursued by Aurora-Celeste da Costa (Melina Mercouri), Steve-Antonio (Tony Franciosa), and a host of other colorful troublemakers, all chasing him for something he doesn't have. Note Bert Kaempfert's music, introducing "Strangers In The Night".   Here is the link to the movie at the Internet Movie database:
