Box set containing three movies starring Raquel Welch. In 'Bandelero' (1968), Mace Bishop (James Stewart) arrives in town with the intention of freeing a gang of outlaws, including his brother, Dee (Dean Martin), from the gallows. They are pursued by a sheriff (George Kennedy), whose lady friend (Welch) has the hots for Dee. The brothers try to go straight, but before they can make up their mind they find themselves surrounded by Mexican banditos and are forced to team up with the sheriff to fight them off. In 'Fantastic Voyage' (1966), a group of medics (Stephen Boyd, Welch, William Redfield, Arthur Kennedy and Donald Pleasance) and a submarine are miniaturised and injected into the bloodstream of a top Czech scientist, who was shot while defecting, in order to carry out delicate, life-saving surgery. Travelling though his body is hazardous, but far more dangerous is the suspicion that one of them is a traitor. They race against time to perform the surgery and escape from the body before they return to their full size. In 'Fathom' (1967) a voluptuous dental hygienist-turned-skydiver Fathom Harvill (Welch) is recruited by a top-secret government agency to parachute into Spain in search of an elusive war defector (Tony Franciosa) and a missing H-bomb detonator he is believed to possess. But the super sexy spy may expose more than she bargained for as she unravels the truth behind her employer's motives. In 'Lady In Cement' (1968), Tony Rome (Frank Sinatra) is a private detective who finds a woman encased in cement while he is out scuba diving. Hired to find the killer, Tony soon finds she was involved in the Miami underworld and may have been killed as part of a gangland double-cross. As he tries to bring the killer to justice, Tony finds himself evading both cops and crooks.
