Trivia

Most of the "Teenage Diplomats" use their own names as the character names. The exceptions are the pivotal roles played by Kathy Dunn (Candy Hull the American), Lynne Sue Moon (Mai Ling the Chinese), and Gina Trikonis (Natasha the Russian). See more »

Goofs

When Candy's father shot into the limousine door lock to break Candy out and save her from the bomb, she crouched down in the back seat and hid directly behind the door lock so that he was shooting directly at her head from only a couple of feet away, instead of moving to the far side of the back seat to get away from the door. At that range, his shot should have gone through the door and hit her in the head. See more »

Saw this movie when I was 11 or 12, love it!
1 September 2001 | by (Southbridge, MA) – See all my reviews

Several decades later, I still remember it, and wish it were on video or dvd. William Castle had a unique ability when it came to putting children in dangerous adult situations. His other film that comes to mind here is "Let's Kill Uncle," about a 12 year boy whose life is in dangered by his charming, cunning, financially challenged, ex-spy uncle. I think the bad reviews are a reflection of the fact that the film is hard to catagorize. As a pre-teen I found the idea of a group of young girls from different nations and cultures saving the world very appealing. Kinda fit in with my devotion to the Man From UNCLE.
