The two main spoof films which drew unashamedly and directly from the 'real' Bond were Casino Royale, arguably a 'Bond' film in it's own right, although treated with somewhat comedic direction, and an Italian production, curiously starring Sean Connery's brother, called variously 'Operation Kid Brother' and 'OK Connery'. Various other 'super' secret agents saved the world on both the large and small screens during the Sixties, to a greater or lesser believable extent, but drew less directly on the James Bond stories than these. With the nature of these types of film, you will find even more Bond look-alike movies listed in my Sixties Science Fiction Films pages, some of which I've listed further below.


Anne Francis 'Honey West'

Roger Moore 'The Saint'

Steve Forrest 'The Baron'

Patrick McGoohan 'Danger Man'

Strangely, the creation which probably came closer than a lot of these in character, and which Roger Moore very successfully transferred to his portrayal of 007 in later Bond films, wasn't a secret agent at all but a modern-day Robin Hood type adventurer - The Saint - created by Leslie Charteris. 'The Baron' ( Steve Forrest ) was another TV independent buccaneer in the same mould. More of a true 'secret agent' was Patrick McGoohan as 'Danger Man'.

Operation Kid Brother    1967

a.k.a.'
OK Connery' 'Operation Double 007' 'Secret Agent 00'

Produzione D.S.           
Directed by Alberto De Martino


A Bond spoof film, the best of several Italian attempts, which interestingly contains many genuine 'Bond' artists. The evil crime organisation Thanatos is planning to take over the world using a magnetic field generator that will stop all metal machinery. The top secret agent is not available so his civilian brother, Neil ( played by Sean's brother Neil Connery ), is pressed into service to save us. Multi-skilled in plastic surgery, lip-reading and hypnotism he finds his talents come in conveniently handy.

     Ian Fleming
