In the tradition of “Barbarella”, comes this sexy sci-fi cult classic from the late 60’s! Following a game of strip poker, blonde bombshell Ann Olsen (Yutte Stensgaard) learns that Special Agent James Word (Robin Horden) is investigating Public Enemy No.1, Major Borden (James Robertson Justice). With the assistance of the nerdy Swyne (Charles Hawtrey), Borden is investigating a race of sexy, scantily clad super women, led by the shapely Zeta (Dawn Addams). It seems that attractive young women are being abducted from Earth and then brainwashed into serving Zeta, all wearing kinky, fetishistic outfits. Borden's plan is to track down Zeta and her seductive sirens and become their new ruler.

How right you are.
I wrote a very funny script. I filmed a very funny movie. It was Monty Python before anybody had heard of them.
The real plot was simple. Angva, a planet inhabited by only females was dying out. The Queen ( Zeta ) sent three girls to find a handsome stud so the stock on the planet could be replenished.
The girls tried to find James Bond and kidnap him as the stud for Angva. They however got confused and waylayed a two bit detective call James Word as somebody convinced them that a Word was as good as a Bond.
Yes the film is everythng the last reviewer says.
I wrote and Directed a film, which is not on the DVD. The producer had no sense of absurd humour and refilmed many scenes. The secretary is a girl I ave never seen before and replaced an excellent comedy actress. I think the produce met her on a trip to Stockholm and had to honour his committment tro a part in a movie for her.
The girls had dynamic jump suits and the fight scenes were very well choreographed. However the Producer went and filmed them all again naked but uneditable. The detective James word had an old Austin 7 and the wheels kept falling off. Producer refilmed with Aston Martin.
The main problem, the Producer cut out half the dialogue. I had designed the movie to display thought bubbles, as in strip cartoons. Consequently the dialogue is stilted to allow for these extra dialogue balloons to be read. This is especally noticable in the strip poker scene, where what they were saying in their minds was hilaros, but cut out because the producer did not want to waste money on them after all the rest of movie had been shot.Read more ›
If you read the summary of the film, you will be wondering if you were sent the wrong movie as you watch the opening third of the movie. This may be the most boring twenty-five minutes ever caught on film; even the big strip poker scene is mind-numbingly tedious. Worst of all, we have to spend so much time with the film's main character James Word. I would not even insult James Bond by calling James Word a poor spoof of the man. Word is a spy of some sort who spends most of his time in bed. This is made possible by strange women who magically appear in his apartment from out of the blue. Girl number one is his boss' secretary, which allows her to see through Worth's "brilliant" fake moustache disguise; she pumps him for information about his latest mission, but he has other things on his mind. Did I mention the fact that Worth is a pitiful, rather slimy specimen of manhood? Anyway, Worth eventually opens up and tells girl number one this incredible story about a race of superwomen and the master criminal who tried to conquer them.
Yes, a Major Bourdon and his bespectacled dweeb of an assistant Mr.Read more ›
He has been investigating a Major Bourdin who has been have a series of run ins with a mysterious force of women. They are led by Zeta and have the ability to teleport. It is unknown if they are from space, the future or another dimension, but they have set up a colony of women. They add to the colony through kidnaping and brainwashing.
The film appears to have made no attempt at being erotic (check out the strip poker scene as an example) and the plotting is wooden (although some of the actual acting is quite good).
In the end we learn what the secretary is really up to and the final fate of James. I have to say that I enjoyed it more than I thought I would based on the other reviews.
