Mrs. Pollifax–Spy is a 1971 American comedy film directed by Leslie H. Martinson. It starred Rosalind Russell as well as Darren McGavin and Nehemiah Persoff, and was released by United Artists. Russell herself, who was credited using the pen name “C. A. McKnight,” a pen name she had drawn from the maiden name of her own mother, adapted the novel The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, which had been written by Dorothy Gilman. It would be Russell’s last role in a theatrically released film.
Mrs. Emily Pollifax, a widow from New Jersey, volunteers to be a spy for the CIA, being in her own opinion, “expendable” now that the children are grown. Being just what the agency needed (someone who looks and acts completely unlike a spy), she’s assigned to simple courier duty to pick up a book in Mexico City. She finds this easier said than done. (Per the film’s tagline: “Before she joined the CIA, Mrs. Pollifax thought Red China was a set of dishes.”) She is kidnapped and imprisoned in communist Albania, and must use her wits to escape.
