Oliver Reed was well known as a difficult actor to work with. One night after one too many alcoholic drinks, he actually tossed his tuxedo costume into the sea from a Monte Carlo hotel room. The company manager learning of this the following morning, rowed out into the Mediterranean to retrieve it before it floated away. Rather than add an additional expense to an already tight budget.

When the Condorman logo appears, a cartoon Condorman poses next to it and gets his wing caught underneath it. This is followed by the Condorman cartoon flying (and crashing) over live-action footage of Paris during the opening credits. See more »
I love this movie. I grew up watching Condorman and I always think of it with fond memories. The special effects may not be the best; however, the movie is over two decades old, and I think the effects are quite adequate. Besides, the movie is not supposed to be realistic, but rather it is a comedy with action elements. It provides a window into what people worried about in the early eighties; Cold War espionage is a major part of the story. Overall, it is charming and is a feel-good movie. It has all the classic elements: good verses evil and boy meets girl. It is a quality family movie and I would recommend this film to all who are young at heart.
