Storyline

Kirk Warren, a former spy, is to be executed because he tried to steal a million dollars. But he is saved by Colonel Smithson because Sir Wilcox has prepared a mission for him. Warren has to steal a secret formula in Switzerland and try to expose the real identity of Mr. X. Kirk leaves London and Alina, his girl, together with three clumsy friends to accomplish his not so secret mission. But Kirk's great love is always a million dollars and not a secret formula. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

KISS, KISS...BANG, BANG (Duccio Tessari, 1966) **1/2
20 February 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

From what I had watched of the so-called "Eurospy" comedy-thrillers which emerged in the wake of the James Bond extravaganzas had always been relatively middling affairs; this is one of the more popular examples and, though still essentially patchy, is admittedly above par for this sort of thing. Director Tessari and co-stars Giuliano Gemma and Nieves Navarro (better-known as Susan Scott) followed the highly-successful two-film series of "Ringo" Spaghetti Westerns with the title under review; interestingly, apart from Tessari, the script was penned by two other future film-makers – namely Bruno Corbucci and Fernando Di Leo – and the same would be the case for the movie's producer i.e. Luciano Ercoli (coincidentally enough, Navarro/Scott's spouse)! Anyway, the film is generally entertaining – yet, with a length of 112 minutes, a hectic pace and an anything-goes attitude which actually anticipates that official maligned Bond spoof CASINO ROYALE (1967), it emerges a decidedly overblown concoction! Amusingly, it all starts with the hero in prison and set for the hangman's noose; however, he will be pardoned by his nemesis – a bald-headed and rotund inspector prone to belly laughs! – if he successfully carries out a spy mission…for which his sole condition involves recruiting the aid of a dashing acrobat, a nimble (if wacky) safecracker and an aging security-systems wizard. Eventually, and not atypically, both the very man who gave him the assignment (Georges Rigaud) and his own girlfriend (Navarro) turn out to be after the obligatory "McGuffin" themselves!; also embroiled in the intricacies, in the hero's corner, are a veteran Mata Hari-like spy, her kooky female relative, their parrot (who is entrusted with the all-important formula!) and, on the other side, a karate-practicing heavy (perhaps a nod to GOLDFINGER [1964]'s Harold "Oddjob" Sakata). As with the Bond movies, the climax is an extended chase/fight sequence that goes all the way from a fairground setting to a castle battlements. Finally, while kind of trivial in itself, Bruno Nicolai's score admirably fits the playful mood on display throughout.
