Trivia

Initial flight scene filmed at Honolulu International Airport, small craft runway, on Oahu. Shortly after the plane takes off and the camera pans the background following the plane, and stops with a large pink building seen in the background. This is Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC), the headquarters of the Pacific Regional Medical Command of the armed forces administered by the United States Army in the state of Hawaii. TAMC is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific rim region. The hospital was founded in 1907, but the current building was commissioned in 1942 during the beginning of the US involvement in WWII. It was completed in 1948, and is located on the slopes of Moanalua Ridge overlooking the Honolulu neighborhoods of Moanalua and Salt Lake. It's massive coral pink structure can be seen from any point in the Honolulu District. See more »

Eye Candy Hall of Fame
18 August 1999 | by Robbie-43See all my reviews

The members of the academy have selected this film into our Hall of Fame mainly on the physical attributes of Dona Speir and Hope Marie Carlton. These two lovely ladies make a (have a) wonderful pair and their camaraderie give this film a uplifting spirit seldom seen (think Newman & Redford). Throw in the changing clothes scene of Cynthia Brimhall and the topless walk-thru by Patty Duffek and the mix is complete. This is the first entry of the Sidaris spy-action movies with this ensemble. It is also the best work by Speir and Carlton in terms of acting without the threat of costumes stealing the scene. So grab a brew and watch this piece from start to the closing credits where the nude scenes are reshown (a wonderful final tribute thanks to the genius of Andy Sidaris).
