Dir: Eddie Nicart
In Manila a crime syndicate led by Mr. Giant is determined to conquer the world and their first step is to kidnap the visiting Dr. Van Kohler. He is the inventor of the N bomb and they want his formula. To help finance their plans they run prostitutes, kidnap rich businessmen, smuggle drugs in loaves of bread ("There's a lotta dough in this dough.") and "cover every sandbox and kindergarten" for customers.
Their quest for world dominance seems inevitable until we are introduced
to secret agent 00. He's a weapons expert, a kung fu master, a ladies
man and he's only three feet tall! Played by Filipino Weng Weng, 00
is the most outrageous leading man ever to grace the silver screen.
He slides between legs, uses an umbrella to do a Mary Poppins from
the fifteenth floor and leaves women swooning. He comes equip with
the coolest gadgets: a pendant communicator, a ring that detects poison,
an Oddjob hat and glasses that can see through clothing. Aided by Lola,
a reluctant hooker who gets "shot at once or twice a week" and
Irma an undercover agent, the squabby 00 is soon ruining the gangs
plans. He breaks up a drug party where some thugs inhale joints up
their nose, and then uses his miniature jetpack to fly to Hidden Island
where Mr. Giant is hiding his captives.
