WILL THE REAL MATT HELM PLEASE STAND UP!

WILL THE REAL MATT HELM PLEASE STAND UP!

J. Kingston Pierce, editor of The Rap Sheet, has a nice piece on Don Hamilton’s revered secret agent/assassin character Matt Helm.


“If readers have trouble nowadays trying to put their finger on exactly who Matt Helm was, it’s not without good reason. After all, the character has gone through three significant and contradictory incarnations, including a television resurrection that tried to meld his original and movie-modified personalities. Were Helm still alive and active, he might be no less confused than the rest of us.”
