Kiss The Girls & Make Them Die (to give it its American title) was one of a number of films in the '60's designed to cash in on the success of James Bond. It was made by Dino De Laurentis, a man who, like Irwin Allen, has attracted more than his fair share of derision over the years, despite having produced some pretty entertaining pictures, of which this is one.
It begins with a curious scene in the Brazilian jungles as eccentric English explorer Lord Aldric (Terry-Thomas) comes across a village where no children have been born in years, and despite the best efforts of the women the men appear completely disinterested in sex. Aldric makes notes in his diary, only to be shot. The diary then goes missing - having been taken by one of the bearers - and a gang of villains, headed by wealthy industrialist David Ardonian (Raf Vallone) set out to recover it. We then move to Rio De Janeiro. An American is watching a pretty girl and a young man through binoculars.
