Trivia

When Al Pereira gets off the bus upon his arrival in Alicante, an audio report in Spanish, likely on radio, is advertising the Alicante release of the movie 'Alphaville, une étrange aventure de Lemmy Caution (1965)' mentioning it's "by Jean-Luc Godard, the director of 'À bout de souffle (1960)' and that it stars Eddie Constantine and Anna Karina. Since Constantine is also the star of this film, this breaks the fourth wall. See more »

Goofs

The story depends on a made-up fact that some people, instead of having a blood type of "positive" or "negative," are neither. The term they used for this was "Rhesus zero," which doesn't really exist. See more »

Pure Eurospy Fun
6 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is pure fun. The English dub is great. Eddie Constantine is a joy to watch on screen. The plot is interesting; mad scientist, using robots, and messing with blood types, you know standard spy stuff. But the movie's charm lies in Constantine as Al, as well as the various characters he encounters along the way. More enjoyable than it's sequel "Residence for Spies"/"Boarding School for Spies" - I really wish he had reprised this role for more movies.

Unlike later Franco, there is nothing objectionable here, PG by today's standards. Suitable for kids.

Interesting side note - it was actually filmed in color; although only B/W prints have surfaced on home media.
