The Spy with a Cold Nose is a 1966 British comedy film directed by Daniel Petrie and starring Laurence Harvey, Daliah Lavi, Lionel Jeffries, Denholm Elliott, and Colin Blakely.[1] The film was nominated for Golden Globe Awards in the Best English-Language Foreign Film[2] and Lionel Jeffries in the Best Performance in a Comedy or Musical category.[3]

The plot is a spy spoof in which a dog is fitted with a covert listening device then passed between agents of the Russian and British intelligence branches.[1][3] The spies recruit a veterinarian, played by Lionel Jeffries, to find the transmitter in the dog's collar. Daliah Lavi plays the sexy Princess Natasha Romanova.
