The Cult Action team! Tonight's feature is a French action thriller titled "Coplan Fx-18 Casse Tout," and sometimes "Phantom FX-18," or "FX-18 Superspy!"
The music in this film was once again created by Maestro Michel Magne, and swings a lot harder than in "Fantômas Vs. Scotland Yard!" Michel really got a chance to stretch out this time around! Here's what it sounds like when this gal is doing the va va voom!
Coplan gets a little testy when the service is too slow!!
Coplan is pretty slick, after he shoots the waiter, he rushes over and tells everyone that's it's going to be okay, because he is a Doctor, and then he disappears before any authorities show up!
These French film makers were either very tricky or nuts, or possibly both, to try a stunt like this!
Valeria (For A Few Dollars Less) Ciangottini is Gelda, the agent with a weird hang-up for dolls! I really didn't get this part! She's gonna get it though!
Now this is an authentic looking gangster!!
"Let me ask you one more time! Where is Gelda?"
Coplan doesn't have a lot of time to do the hanky-panky, but when he does........
Coplan even encounters trouble when he's in the john!!
Jany (Hercules Against The Moon Men) Clair as Héléna Jordan is putting the squeeze on Coplan!
This is the scene they decided to use on the poster! In a hot pursuit, Coplan gets the front tire of his motorcycle shot, so he has to continue chasing them in the wheelie position only riding on the rear wheel, and he still manages to shoot them and not get shot!
This place in Turkey call Korem looks pretty damn interesting!
An actual cool cave that's not on Jupiter!!
WTF?! They've got a rocket in there!!?
"C'mon man, I haven't got all night, it's your move!!"
Snuffed out by a scoop shovel like he was getting eaten by Godzilla, Gil (Kiss Of Fire) Delamare as Shaimoun, Coplan's best buddy, sees the last light of night. Besides being an actor, Gil Delamare was also a stunt man, and during the filming of his next movie, "The Saint Lies in Wait," a mere seven months later, he did a dangerous stunt that was not completely in control, and the car he was driving broke the rear axle, ejecting the passengers and trapping Gil! Gil Delamare was dead at the age of 41!
