SEVEN GOLDEN MEN STRIKE AGAIN (1966)
Il grande colpo dei 7 uomini d’oro (original title)
1966 Italy | France | Spain
Direction: Marco Vicario
Actors: Philippe Leroy, Rossana Podestà, Gastone Moschin
The Professor (Leroy) and his men are captured by U.S. agents during an attempted train robbery. To avoid jail, they must kidnap a Latin dictator. The film is filled with cool sci-fi gadgets, including flying jetpacks. Austin Powers would love this fast moving, groovy sci-fi intrigue thriller.
“Seven Golden Men Strike Again (the sequel to Seven Golden Men) is mostly remembered for stealing Green Arrow’s boxing glove arrow gimmick and modifying it to be used with a bazooka.
It is also remembered for such suspenseful spy moments such as when the professor in charge of things repeatedly broadcasts his burps to his sexy assistant’s speaker-broach in an effort to prevent her from getting hot and heavy with the Latin American dictator she’s trying to seduce as part of a plot to kidnap him.
There’s also the incident where the Professor plays some funky music over the ship’s radio as part of his getaway plan which causes the sailors on other ships who hear it to do some simple dance steps. Clearly, the world of mid 1960s Italian espionage cinema was one where thinking outside the box was as routine as using giant electromagnets on a submarine to hijack a large freighter loaded down with Russian gold!”
