What's Up, Tiger Lily?

COMEDY

Despite insisting in the intro to his 1966 directorial debut (of sorts) that Gone With the Wind used the same strategy, this was the first film to remove the dialogue of one movie and dub a completely new stream of lip-synching nonsense into the mouths of the actors.

So, Japanese spy affair Key of Keys is no longer the Bond-like search for a secret microfilm having been transformed into the hunt to track down a mystery recipe for egg salad. Only occasionally amusing and largely silly, you quickly get the feeling that you’re watching two films neither of which are especially memorable.
