Fathom, lensed on location in Spain to take full advantage of scenic backdrops, is a melange of melodramatic ingredients personalized by the lush presence of Raquel Welsh. Actress stars with Tony Franciosa in this production, highlighted by some exciting parachute scenes.

Script, based on the Larry Forrester novel, was obviously triggered by the real-life incident of an American H-bomb accidentally lost off the coast of Spain.

Welch’s services, as a parachute jumper, are enlised to help recover what is described as an electronic device which will fire the bomb, now in the possession of certain evil forces, and which was not retrieved at the time the bomb itself was salvaged.
