Did You Know?


The movie is based on "Documents à vendre", a Jean Bruce novel, featuring spy hero OSS 117. But the movie rights for the character were not free. So Michel Clement adapted the novel but changed the name of the secret agent into Brian Cannon. Brian Cannon was the name of another Jean Bruce's character (from the novel "Romance de la Mort").
