    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.

    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....
