The Million Eyes of Sumuru
This movie shouldn’t be as enjoyable as it was, but I found myself entertained throughout. It’s basically the type of 60s film that Austin Powers was parodying. A legion of beautiful women seek world domination and it’s up to two unlikely agents to thwart their plans. One of those agents is Frankie Avalon who is often making self-referencing jokes about his situation (“Is this where I am supposed to sing?”). The other hero is a middle-aged man who, despite his wrinkly face, can’t keep the young girls from lusting after him. It’s all goofy fun and was nice to see all the same Shaw Bros. sets used in something other than Kung-Fu.
