After filming a fight scene in a river that was contaminated with pollutants near the end of shooting, Burt Reynolds went to Alabama to participate in a March with Dr. Martin Luther King , Jr. one day he woke up in hospital, with lymph glands the size of softballs. At first it was assumed he had Hodgkin's disease. Finally it was revealed his mystery illness was schistosomiasis - snail eggs in the bloodstram.

Actually, this movie isn't half bad. It's good to see a young Burt Reynolds kicking butt in the orient and making it with the cute Asian chicks. Definitely has that early-to-mid 60s feel, music and all. I recently purchased a very hard to find VHS copy of this movie from a collector, and I'm not gonna get rid of it! Operation CIA is one of them flicks to just kick off your shoes and sit back and relax. Worth checking out....
