A german picture, Das Mädchen von Hongkong (1973), with the same English language translation ("From Hong Kong with Love") had launched only about a couple of years earlier. These film's titles are a spoof and/or reference to the second James Bond movie and source Ian Fleming novel of From Russia with Love (1963) which at the time of this French spoof had been made and released around twelve years earlier. Another James Bond spoof with a similar title would be made and released around twenty years later that being From Beijing with Love (1994) ["From Beijing With Love"]. Another Asian James Bond spoof, For Y'ur Height Only (1981), would later spoof the title and source Bond book of For Your Eyes Only (1981).
