Movie help....

I received a call from Shellee at Gordon's, and she has asked for our help.
It seems a customer of theirs has asked for any information about two movies
with Amphicars in them.
He doesn't know much about them, but this is what he has told her:

1.) "The Agent for H.A.R.M."....he said it is a Universal Productions film.

2.) ...unknown title... German film set in Africa.

If anybody knows anything that would help Shellee out, let her know....or
reply to the Digest and I'll get the information to her.

thanks,
Marc. Schlemmer.

In response to Shellee's appeal for movie info below, it should be admitted
that since we all dig Shellee something wicked over at Amphicar.net, we're
inclined to pull out all the research stops to make her happy, but even we
can't figure out what that second item might be, given that we only have
"German film set in Africa" to go on, and that despite the fact that we're
all fluent speakers of German here...Aber sicher! With that said, we are
contacting our German operatives regarding this matter, and hope for some
reply soon. In the meantime, here's the skinny on the first film:

"The Agent from H.A.R.M." (1966) Starring Peter Mark Richman as Adam
Chance.
Plot Summary: Wimpy secret agent who looks like Dr. Smith from "Lost In
Space" helps protect a scientist from a generic Iron Curtain country who has
developed a gun that shoots boogers at people from a evil guy who looks like
Pee-Wee Herman.

Apparently it is SUCH a rotten film that it is now positively "campy". So
much so that the cable TV cult show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" picked it
up as the backdrop for its episode #815 (Season 8). Those familiar with the
MST3K series know that the basic premise is that some loser of the future is
forced to orbit around in a space station with various homebuilt robots
while his overseers on Earth, who bear him no good will, subject him to
forced broadcasts of the very worst offerings of the motion picture
art..agent thrillers, gladiator epics, boy-meets-alien-zombie-temptress
films. The real creme de la creme.

More on Africa as it comes in...

Just as a followup on the matter of those films (original posting far
below), I have already received a reply from Ren? Pohl in Germany to my
inquiries about that second German film:

=-=-=-=-

Yes, that is funny! It is a soft porno. Between those shots where a monkey
steals a blonde's slip and she is hunting naked after him you can watch a
red Amphicar passing elephants and Hippos. The couple loses the distributor
rotor, so they have to push the Amphi across the jungle. It ends even more
stupidly when the hero sews a sail out of her model dresses, so they can
sail away down stream. I only got a poor copy of it missing the start, but
you could ask Paul Rasmussen how he liked it. I showed this film at the last
main Amphicar Owners Meeting [in Germany], and we were rolling in the
aisles. ~Ren?

=-=-=-=-

Sorry, but there's still no title or other production info as of yet, no
doubt owing to the fact that only a partial copy is available. Needless to
say, the Amphicar.net Library will be doing its very best to fill this
regrettable gap in its Amphicariana motion picture holdings...for research
purposes, you understand. More on this important matter as it comes in....
