DEAL ALERT: OPERATION KID BROTHER

Amazon is currently running a sale on a number of Mystery Science Theater 3000 box sets. Spy Vibers may be interested in picking up volume XXV, which includes the 1967 Eurospy classic, Operation Kid Brother (a.k.a. OK Connery, Operation Double 007). The film stars many actors from the James Bond series, as well as Sean Connery's own brother, Neil. Familiar faces include Bernard Lee (M), Lois Maxwell (Moneypenny), Daniella Bianchi (From Russia With Love), Adolfo Celi (Thunderball, Danger Diabolik), and Anthony Dawson (Dr. No). It also features a celebrated score by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai. Plot synopsis from IMDBThe evil crime syndicate Thanatos is bent on taking over the world, using a magnetic wave generator that will cause all metal-based machinery to grind to a halt. However, the well-known British secret agent normally assigned to such tasks isn't available, so they engage his civilian brother, Neil, to help. Neil, played by Neil Connery, is a world-class plastic surgeon, hypnotist, and lip-reader, which turn out to be precisely the skills required for thwarting Thanatos." Although the original film appears to be now available as streaming content on Amazon, the MST3K version still remains the only official DVD release.
