OK CONNERY

Alberto De Martino1966

Neil Connery, Daniele Bianchi LETTERBOXED PRINT

The Italian producers of this spy spoof REALLY went for the Bond connection by hiring Sean

Connery's untalented dentist brother, Neil for the lead!! Then they hired all the supporting

actors such as Mrs Moneypenny, Q and Bond's boss to play essentially the same parts! Directed

by Alberto de Martino and scored by Ennio Morricone, if you haven't seen this one then by all

means do so immediately!

ONLY THE COOL (1969)

Klaus Kinski, Lili Palmer, Michele Constatine, Stephane Audran in English Letterboxed print

A man secretly works for an Industrial espionage spy group and cold bloodly steals plans and

kills off an extraneous lover. His wife (Stephane Audrane) has no idea about all this and when

informed he's fooling around, promptly kills him and his fellow agent in a fit of passion. The

head of the Paris organization (Lili Palmer) tries to track her down to silence the scared woman

but is having problems with the local police (Michel Constatine). When the organization sends in

their #1 guy (Klaus Kinski in his usual eccentric performance) to help Palmer, it really gets

complicated! An offbeat sixties French film with hippies and bad fashion statements in the

background.

OPERATION EXTERMINATION 

Umberto Lenzi1965

Ingrid Schoeller, Alfredo Lupo, John Heston LETTERBOXED PRINT

Great spy film by Umberto Lenzi starring Ingrid Schoeller, Alberto Lupo, and John Heston with

a great 60s score by Angelo Lavagnino. A criminal organization is creating an anti-radar device

so the US government calls into action agent 008 (I guess 007 was busy making

THUNDERBALL!). Great locations and action, one of the best sixties spy films.

OSS 117 TERROR IN TOKYO

Frederick Stafford, Marina Vlady

Rare letterboxed print of this terrific spy film starring Frederick Stafford as the cold blooded spy

OSS 117 (he kills two spies chasing him in a car by catching their vehicle on fire!). After a

navy base is destroyed by a secret weapon, Stafford is sent to Tokyo where the owners of the

secret weapon that destroyed the base are located. He meets a cohort (Marina Vlady looking

good here!) who admits she was forced to work for the other side. Has she come clean and

ready to help or is she setting Stafford up for the kill? Excellent spy film by director Michel

Boisrond.

OUR MAN IN CASABLANCA (1965) LETTERBOXED PRINT

American agent Brian Kerwin is sent to Casablanca to locate a missing dossier which can be used to blackmail an important politician. Several parties are interested in it - but who stole it, and where is it now? Kerwin is played by Lang Jeffries, who is a better actor than most of his competitors in this genre (notice the scene where he shows genuine sadness over the death of his female assistant). The women in "Our Man In Casablanca" are given plot-related roles, and are not used as mere eye-candy. And there are some classic genre touches, like echoing footsteps in the middle of a quiet night, and a villain with a special weapon (this time, a literally "electrifying" right hand). It's a technically well-done film, but somehow it's also quite tiresome. An example of this is the sequence where a car with Kerwin and a woman is being pursued by a plane spraying DDT on them. This is an ambitious sequence for the kind of budget these movies usually have, and it's pulled off well.

insurance policies naming a certain bank as beneficiary, are mysteriously dying. Lester travels

SEVEN GOLDEN MEN STRIKE AGAIN (1966)

Mario Vicario

Philippe Leroy, Rosanna Podesta, Gastone Moschin, Gabriele Tinti LETTERBOXED PRINT

Directo Mario Vicario's sequel to THE SEVEN GOLDEN MEN with the original cast (Rosanna

Podesta, Philippe Leroy, Gabriele Tinti, etc) returning in fine fashion. This time they are hired

by the US government to perform a job involving testing National security. Podesta (dressed in

black leather like Emma Peel) infiltrates a South American dictator's base of operations in order

to rest control from his hands while the men steal all his gold. This is like an Italian version of

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE.

SOMEBODY HAS STOLEN OUR RUSSIAN SPY (1968)

Jose Luis Madrid1968

Tom Adams, Diana Lorys in english with dutch subs

Excellent Spanish made Spy film starring Tom Adams, Diana Lorys, Tim Barret and Mary Paz

Pondal. Director Jose Luis Madrid (familiar to fans of Spanish Horror films) does a good job in

this 3rd entry in the originally British based Charles Vine series. He goes to Madrid where he is

seeking to find a mad scientist out to rule the world. He is of course captured and tortured.

Diana Lorys is featured so she too can be pursued by the bad guys and seduce Vine while she's

around (she always was hot stuff!)
