Trivia

When asked about this movie Burt Reynolds replied "It looked every inch of its $70,000 budget. The heavy was played by the hotel bell hop, because he had a deep voice. The prop man series up once and used live ammo. I fought a cobra that hadn't been milked of its poison. And near the end I did a fight scene in a river that was contaminated with pollutants. Perhaps it wouldn't have mattered even if I'd had a spleen to purify my blood. As it was, the toxins got in to my system and went to town." See more »

Our Man in Saigon!
16 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

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....
