Secret Agent Super Dragon

New York chiama Superdrago
[New York Calling Superdragon]
Höllenjagd auf heiße Ware

1966

(as Calvin Jackson Padget)

Secret society attempts to take over the world using mind-control chewing gum and Ming vases. . .or something like that. It's up to Bryan Cooper, aka Super Dragon, to foil them!

Enjoyable low-rent Eurospy film is much better than the horrible reviews and low rating on IMDb would indicate. This is largely due to its appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000, a funny show, but one which has encouraged people into thinking any film that appears there is automatically worthless. This tendency is as bad in it's own way as the Medveds' witless Golden Turkey books. The fact that the film used is usually a badly dubbed pan & scan copy that's missing a large part of the run time (in this case, almost the entire ending!) so they could cram in host segments and commericals is also unfortunate, especially when so many of the jokes are about the plot making no sense. Meh.

Deserves at least one extra star just for Marisa Mell in it. . .

IMDb credits, as always for non-American films of this era, are inaccurate. Corrections made where I could, but any knowledgable help would be appreciated on the unknowns!
