Double Agent 73 (1974)

Director: Doris Wishman

Starring: Chesty Morgan, Frank Silvano, Saul Meth, Jill Harris

More info: IMDb

Tagline: The Most Unbelievable Set Of Secret Weapons!

Plot: Underworld drug king Toplar is flooding the market with low-grade heroin. Agent 99 gets a bit too close to the truth, but manages to gasp out a clue as to the identity of Toplar: he has a scar. Jane (Agent 73) is called in to find Toplar, and gets a camera implanted in her breast in order to photograph the bad guys she dispatches so headquarters will be able to identify Toplar when she finds him. Meanwhile she begins falling in love with fellow agent Jim.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? Shit. I might.

If you haven't figured out the's her gargantuan jungle drums and there is a camera imbedded into her left one. It sounds like comedy gold and it's got moments of pure insane fun but for 72 minutes? Nope. Give this flick a reduction by a cup size or two and you'd probably have yourself a great little picture. As it is, though, it's still outrageously goofy and fun.

The opening credits will have you in stitches. The bombastic orchestral stock library music cues are priceless. I love the dubbing. Supposedly Chesty's thick Polish accent was too much which caused her to be dubbed but it's clear the movie was shot without sound and all of the audio was added in post. I love it.

The whole idea of implanting a camera in her boob is off the charts wacky and it doesn't make any damn sense at all. There's no reason for it except for a great way to get Chesty's assets out and provide a lot of laughs. You'll find yourself laughing every single time she does it and that's a lot. I'm going to have to fast track seeing her only other film, 1974's DEADLY WEAPONS. DA73 was the last of a fun triple feature last night starting with I DRINK YOUR BLOOD (1970), I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (1978).
