In the clutches of Madame Sin (Original title: Madame Sin ) is a British science fiction film directed by David Greene for independent artists from 1972 with Bette Davis , Robert Wagner , Denholm Elliott and Gordon Jackson in the lead roles.


Anthony Lawrence is an ex- CIA agent , one of the best in his field. But he has given up his job. But you don't leave him alone. He gets into the vicious circle of the power-hungry Madame Sin, who is obsessed with usurping world domination and has no qualms about having him kidnapped to harness him for her own purposes.

She commands an army of scientists in a think tank in the Scottish Highlands . With the help of Lawrence, Madame Sin tries to get a Polaris submarine so that she can finally put her sinister plans into practice.


“A mysterious and power-hungry woman tries to win world domination from a coastal island, uses medicinal-chemical inventions for her goals and kidnaps people and submarines. Science fiction film, staged silly and without tension; hollow in terms of content, only complex on the outside. "
