The Next Man emerges more a slick travesty with political overtones than the cynical suspense meller it was designed to be.

The project apparently grew out of an interesting proposition – a major oil-producing nation breaks with the Middle Eastern oil cartel to join forces with Israel to assure technological development and peace.

Pic is based on an original story by Alan R. Trustman and David M. Wolf. No less than four writers compiled the screenplay and it shows.

Briefly, Sean Connery plays a peace-mongering Saudi Arabian diplomat, dispatched to the UN to plead a case for Israel cooperation. For such arrant revisionism he is plagued by a network of Arab terrorists in whose employ is a beautiful, wealthy playgirl, friskily portrayed by Cornelia Sharpe.
