Aired on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1967
"Kiss Kiss...Kill Kill" (1966) was only the beginning of a popular Eurospy series teaming Tony Kendall and Brad Harris, but remained the only one to air on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater, on November 11 1967, paired with second feature "Panic in Year Zero." Accurately described as a knockoff of "Goldfinger," with the female lead in the more than capable hands of Austrian-born beauty Maria Perschy, whose vast genre credits include "The Mad Executioners," "No Survivors, Please," "A Witch Without a Broom," "Murders in the Rue Morgue," and "The Ghost Galleon," plus one film with Peter Cushing ("Battleflag"), two with Christopher Lee ("Five Golden Dragons" and "The Castle of Fu Manchu"), plus four with Paul Naschy ("The Hunchback of the Morgue," "House of Psychotic Women," "Exorcismo," and "The People Who Own the Dark"). German-born blonde knockout Christa Linder (Miss Austria 1962) did one of the sequels, but worked a great deal in Mexico, with the distinction of appearing in Boris Karloff's final feature film, 1968's "Incredible Invasion." Tony Kendall started out in Mario Bava's "The Whip and the Body" (1963), and later appeared in a pair of horrors from Amando De Ossorio, "Return of the Evil Dead" and "When the Screaming Stops," while Idaho-born Brad Harris, a veteran of Italy's peplum films, went on to do titles such as "King of Kong Island," "The Mad Butcher," "The Mutations," and "Lady Dracula."
