KISS THE GIRLS AND MAKE THEM DIE (1966)


Se tutte le donne del mondo… (Operazione Paradiso) (original title)

1966 Italy
Direction: Henry Levin, Arduino Maiuri
Actors: Mike Connors, Dorothy Provine, Raf Vallone

In this spoof of spy films, CIA agent, Kelly, is in Rio de Janeiro spying on a wealthy industrialist, David Ardonian, who secretly plans to turn the world sterile and repopulate it with his harem. UK spy, Susan Fleming, helps Kelly. An outlandish science-fiction, comedy-thriller full of tongue-and-cheek action, ingenious gadgets in the James Bond style combining violence and tension with polished villainy and flippant espionage, as the resourceful CIA Mike “Mannix” Connors and British agents, Dorothy Provine and Terry-Thomas (both previously in “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”) escape death-traps on land, sea and air.

A favourite of Quentin Tarantino, the 1960’s James Bond spoof offers bags of personality and technical skill, with an opening set-piece atop Rio de Janeiro that puts the early Bond to shame. Featuring a hero with a passion for guns, girls and bananas, Kiss The Girls is notable for the location filming, wonderfully elaborate costumes sported by, a wonderful gag involving a Rolls Royce, and Terry Thomas as a karate-chopping chauffeur.
