When I was a kid, reruns of Mission Impossible (the TV show, not the Tom Cruise vehicles, you younguns) were all the rage. Remember, this was the era of eight channels, before affordable VHS technology. An hour long show featuring a good mystery was something special.
At any rate, Peter Graves was the leader of the Impossible Mission Force, and I developed an admittedly childish notion that he was a really good actor. My journey through life since then can easily be described as a string of massive disappointments, as I keep seeing Peter Graves in one terrible movie after the next. I am left a shattered, bitter man, with little left to believe in.
Granted, I'm pretty sick right now, and so my perceptions may be way out of whack, but this movie is the nail in my Peter Graves aggrandizement coffin. Simply awful.
That said, you should definitely watch this. Kitschy crappy goodness from beginning to end.
