Kiss the Girls Misses

Cleveland Press January 19, 1967

"Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die" is an ineptly made spy spoof that could not amount to anything if it tried and it seldom tries.

The movie was produced by Dino de Laurentiis, the same man who produced "The Bible." Which proves that anyone can have an off day.

The Rio de Janeiro scenery is interesting and the gimmicks are some of the wildest ever, but that's about it.

Raf Vallone, a fine actor who should know better, is the villain of the piece. Terry-Thomas is as good a clown as ever in spite of the script. Dorothy Provine is unbelievably bad as she uncomfortably mouths a British accent. Michael Connors, as a diluted Bond-type spy, doesn't register.

ARCH VILLAIN Vallone is about to use a weapon which would render the population sterile and impotent.

He would remain safe in a deep freeze and he has a few chicks whom he could return to life later on. The rest of the population could talk about sex but do nothing about it.

Which is about all that happens throughout this movie.
