is a Star Wars influenced production from Alfonso Brescia
(best known for BATTLE
OF AMAZONS and MURDER
IN A BLUE LIGHT). His attempt - with theodd title -
was to tie this film to the popular Seven Gold Men spy-series
just as he had done by linkinghisBEAST
IN SPACE to Walerian Borowczyk's BEAST the year previous. Alfonso Brescia directed 50+ movies between
1964-1994 [usually under the Al Bradley pseudonym]. His breakout film,
in early 1972, was NUDE
GIRL FOUND DEAD IN THE PARK. Mr Brescia died from heart failure
at age 71 in June of 2001.
