What's Up, Tiger Lily? ★★★ 1966

This legitimate Japanese spy movie—”Kagi No Kag” (Key of Keys), a 1964 Bond imitation—was re-edited by Woody Allen, who added a new dialogue track, with hysterical results. Characters Terri and Suki Yaki are involved in an international plot to secure egg salad recipe; Allen's brand of Hollywood parody and clever wit sustain the joke. Music by the Lovin' Spoonful, who make a brief appearance. 90m/C VHS, DVD .
