also known as EL GRAN DRAGON, ESPIA INVISIBLE [The Great Dragon,
Invisible Spy] (Spanish)
and HELL CATS
starring Roger Browne · Yoko Tani · Dan Vargas · Emma
Danieli · Fernando Cebrián · Giovanna Lenzi
film is the sequel in Umberto Lenzi's SuperSeven Spy series, preceded
CALLING!, once again following the exploits of British secret
agent Martin Stevens (Roger Browne). Here, the "00" spy is assigned
an elimination contract of three people who have knowledge of a device
capable of shutting down the power supply for any major city. His mission
takes him throughout Europe. Martin's first two kills (in Paris and Geneva)
are accomplished quickly and easily enough. But the third (in Athens)
is a bit more complicated with a Dragon Lady, Mai Ling, calling the shots.
Browne, originally from Cincinnati Ohio, relocated to Italy in the early
sixties after getting hired for voice-dubbing work. Over the years, Roger
would star in a variety of genre films from EMANUELLE
IN AMERICA to the outrageous superhero spoof THE
FANTASIC ARGOMAN, from WOMEN
OF CELLBLOCK 7 to SAMOA
QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE. Roger returned to the United States in 2008
and has appeared on several television shows, as he continues to act even
after turning 90 in 2019.
actress Giovanna Lenzi [cousin of director Umberto] was married to
filmmaker Sergio Pastore, until his death in 1987. She has a brief scene
here, at the bullfight in the opening minutes of the film. Giovanna is
better known to cult fans for directing DELITTI
(Crimes), generally considered the worst European movie of all time.
