What’s Up Tiger Lily

I’ve mentioned this early Woody Allen movie before, here and here, but not in great detail. As I am short of time now, I won’t do it here either. But here’s the wikipedia entry for this great film.

What’s Up, Tiger Lily? is the first film directed by Woody Allen. He also wrote and appeared in this 1966 comedy, which utilized clips from Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kagi no kagi (literal English title: International Secret Police: Key of Keys, 1965, [1]), a Japanese spy film. Instead of translating the film, Allen added completely original dialogue that had nothing to do with the plot of the original Japanese film. By putting in new scenes and rearranging the order of existing scenes, he completely changed the tone of the film from a James Bond clone into a comedy about a secret egg salad recipe.

Here are some related egg salad recipes. If anyone would like to see this movie, there’s a link on my FaceBook. =D
