Strictly for TV nostalgia freaks, The Nude Bomb unsuccessfully attempted to resurrect the characters created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry for the hit 1960s spy-spoof TV series, Get Smart.
But with the absence of Barbara Feldon and Edward Platt (who were integral to the series as Agent 99 and The Chief respectively), the screenplay laboured under a decided disadvantage in the telling of a tale that involved Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) attempting to prevent the evil organisation KAOS from launching a missile designed to send the whole world into a state of nudity.
The cast included Sylvia Kristel, Rhonda Fleming, Dana Elcar, Pamela Hensley, Andrea Howard, Norman Lloyd, Bill Dana and Gary Imhof.
The movie was directed by Clive Donner who – hampered by the show’s lack of satirical bite – wasn’t really able to do much with it. Ironically (considering Maxwell Smart was originally meant to be a parody of James Bond) The Nude Bomb wasn’t even as funny as Moonraker!
