The Phynx is a 1970 American comedy film directed by Lee H. Katzin[1] about a rock and roll band named The Phynx and their mission in foreign affairs. The group is sent to the country of Albania to locate celebrity hostages taken prisoner by Communists.

This turned out to be the final film appearance for several of the veteran performers in the cast, including Leo Gorcey, George Tobias and Marilyn Maxwell.


The Phynx was barely released[clarification needed] and has since become something of an obscure, rarely seen cult film; bootleg copies for many years turned up on auction websites before Warner Archive officially released the film on DVD for the first time in October 2012.[2]
