Trivia

The bulk of this film was shot in mid-1967 (shooting title "Operation M"), including all footage with Broderick Crawford, Scott Brady, Kent Taylor and John Carradine. Production finally wrapped in 1969 with biker footage featuring Robert Dix, whose name is only listed in the opening credits. Apparently, the addition of the cyclists was the only way the producers could get their picture released. This was one of seven completed features awaiting distribution when Al Adamson and Samuel M. Sherman formed their company, Independent-International Pictures Corp., beginning operations in 1969. See more »

Goofs

At approximately one hour and thirteen minutes (1:13) into the movie, while a leather case is being removed from the trunk of a Ford Mustang, a boom microphone enters the scene from the top of the screen. Perhaps half the length of the microphone enters the frame and is visible for three or more seconds in time. See more »

What a strange concoction!
1 July 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I hope when you see it, you see it with the great preview for this film--the one that warns the faint of heart to go to the snack bar instead of watching the depravity and violence! It's really campy and rather funny--and is better than the rest of the film. In fact, it really looks like a totally different film, as the preview makes it out to be a biker film whereas the thing turns out to have almost nothing to do with these bikers!

The opening credits you then see are really rather cool--but also have a lot of nudity. You can certainly tell that this is NOT a movie for the kids! And, when you see the name Al Adamson, you know that the film will truly suck--he's the king of schlock film of the 1960s and 70s. His films, if it's possible, are every bit as bad as Larry Buchanan's and, Ted Mikels' and Hershell Gordon Lewis'--and so you realize that despite the interesting credits, the rest of the film will only get worse--so enjoy the credits while you can! And, when you learn that the film is about a group of neo-Nazis uniting with biker gangs and Communists, you know that Adamson is up to form! And, in a very, very tack move, an Israeli agent is out to get the evil Kruger (the Nazi war criminal) because he killed her family at Auschwitz! Using Auschwitz as a plot point just seemed...gross and rather exploitative.

Here is where the film just gets even more weird. At about 40 minutes into the film, the male lead asks a lady to lunch. They go to Kentucky Fried Chicken and out of nowhere, in walks Colonel Sanders---THE Colonel Sanders! He asked them what they thought of his chicken and then just stood there staring at them as they ate!!! Why? I dunno--nor did the Colonel apparently! It was like a free ad for his chicken! In the middle of the movie! And it had nothing, really, to do with the plot! How strange and cool is that?! And, in many ways, this weird and irrelevant appearance by the Colonel is EXACTLY like the rest of the film. Many scenes are irrelevant and seem to be tossed in randomly and almost every type of character shows up in this strange melange of a film! By the way, in addition to Commies, Nazis, mobsters and the such, there also are government agents. However, one of the agents is a sexy lady and the other is Broderick Crawford--who mostly sits around and does an imitation of a giant talking carbuncle. I am actually surprised that zombies and perhaps Count Dracula didn't show up--nearly every other type of character did!

In a curious little scene, check out the twins in the pet shop. They might look familiar. They are Alyce Andrece and Rhae Andrece. They starred as two of the robots on the original "Star Trek" series (the "I, Mudd" episode).

Overall, a strange and confusing concoction. While a few elements aren't terrible, the over experience is. For example, while the theme music is pretty good, it's repeated again and again and again until you are ready to scream! Bad....just plain bad.
