Oss 117 Se Dechaine was the first movie made about Jean Bruce's secret agent character, Hubert Bonisseur De la Bath, a French CIA agent.
I was an avid reader of Bruce's books and was very satisfied this first movie was such a faithful adaptation of one of his novels; actually, the movie was a combination of two novels, but remained very faithful to the story and characters, much the way From Russia With Love was faithful to Ian Fleming's book (to a point.) The later movies, Banco a Bangkok and Furia a Bahia, though retaining the author's original titles, did not remain faithful to the stories and diverged the way later James Bond movies diverged from their original book titles.
