Seen on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1970 - twice!
27 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Franco and Ciccio remain much beloved in their native Italy, but elsewhere they didn't have much exposure. Apart from co-starring with Vincent Price in "Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs," and Buster Keaton in "War Italian Style," most American viewers would have probably caught the pair in this James Bond spoof, known by its TV title, "The Amazing Doctor G" (now perhaps better known as "Goldginger"). There really aren't so many gags based on "Goldfinger," but it's all in good fun, actually better than the other two examples. Franco's mugging (ala Jerry Lewis) isn't as annoying as the voice he was dubbed with, while Ciccio, not really a straight man, has less identity than Larry Fine. As Goldginger, Fernando Rey, veteran of numerous international films ("Voyage of the Damned," "The French Connection"), will be remembered by genre buffs for 1962's "Face of Terror" and 1966's "Attack of the Robots." "The Amazing Doctor G" made a surprising four appearances on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater: Jan 24 1970 (following 1951's "I Was an American Spy"), Dec 12 1970 (following 1964's "The Time Travelers"), July 31 1971 (followed by 1966's "Castle of Evil"), and Apr 7 1973 (following 1942's "Bowery at Midnight").
