A Better Movie, Within This Movie, Called "a Girl on Bed" !

It's Bond, and its active impact. This movie traces back the formula of the super spy who, at the moment, used to deliver one movie per year since the first explosion in (Dr. No - 1962).

Actually, 1965 witnessed a blowup of many many Bonds : The American Bond (Our Man Flint), the Italian one (Berlino - Appuntamento per le spieanother) who was propagandized as (Better than Bond!), the old French one (Furia à Bahia pour OSS 117), an European one "Agent 077" with 2 movies already (Agente 077 missione Bloody Mary), (Agente 077 dall'oriente con furore), a Japanese one (Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kagi no kagi) which Woody Allen spoofed one year later through (What's Up, Tiger Lily?), another British one (The Liquidator), even an Egyptian one (Jassus, El). Not to mention the cinematic spoof (Two Mafiosi Against Goldfinger), the TV spoof (Get Smart), and TV shows with clear affection (I Spy), (The Wild Wild West). And I almost forgot The original Bond himself in (Thunderball)! WAW, remember ALL OF THAT was in 1965 alone !

Some years huh ?! Who can hate some of action, international tours, Jazz music, spying gadgets, and – most of all – sexy chicks ?! And when it comes to the 1960s; they were The chicks!

Ken Clark is great as a walking wall (who can smile occasionally!). He plays (Dick Malloy). (Leslie Nielsen) will make a Bond spoof 30 years later in (Spy Hard) under the name of (Dick) also. It makes you asking; maybe Agent 077 was a spoof itself ?!

It's fluff. Nice for what it is. And despite all the fanatic lovers of James Bond's movies, I see that (Bloody Mary) isn't less good. Maybe not "as polished" but sure "as idiot" ! The problem with the clones is that they're always come secondly. And this movie is part poor and part traditional as well. However, I kind of enjoyed it. And maybe more than many of the original Bonds.

But if you want to talk about the thing that I enjoyed more then let's talk about the one who played the immortal role of "a girl on the bed" (who I couldn't find her name anywhere!). This chick is marvelous. I'm definitely in love. She's the first thing comes to my mind whenever I remember such a movie, being its highest elements at all. She looks like Elke Sommer's twin. In fact the similarity is fabulous. Well, most of the 1960s' sexy bimbos were derived from (MM) or (BB) or both. This one being coquettish voluptuous with the short blond hair and the inebriated moves is no exception.

Although she's on-screen for nearly a minute, but this is a matchless minute and better than the whole thing! I can't forget her in this black, very short, nightgown weltering on bed, holding a glass of wine, kissing the lead a big kiss, Ahhhhhh this is a dream more than a girl. By the way many can't forget that too, since this scene is all over youtube. The position sounds similar to Sylvia Trench's attitude with Bond in (Dr. No) and the bed dalliance of Jill Masterson in (Goldfinger), but sorry.. this beauty wins. Frankly, the real similarity that must be found is the similarity between The sexy and The sixties ?!

The second thing I loved is the title song. (Bloody Mary), written by Ennio Morricone and Maurizio Graf, is one of the best songs of Bond-era. Its music is really sticky yet in a good way. Believe it or not it still echoes in my mind after 12 years of the only watching, exactly like (Maurizio Graf)'s so serious voice and theatrical pronouncing while performing it. Sometimes I cool down myself with it, hence you can say that it's one of my happy songs. Na.. Naa..Naaaa. Na.. Naa..Naaaa.. Bloody MaRRRRYYYYYY. Sorry, but the tune is just haunting !

With the light plot it's diverting. I got a place for it in my heart since it was the second movie I rented in my life (the first one was Hot Shots). FYI, I rented it before the whole collection of Mr. Bond.

Ahh, the 1960s… Where I can find you again ?! Except on the video stores' shelves, the internet, and the TV. The real sad matter is : where to find the 1960s's chicks else these sources ?!!!!
