What's Up, Tiger Lily

With some creative overdubbing, the Japanese spy yarn International Secret Police: Key of Keys turns into a thriller detailing a black market syndicate's relentless search for a top secret egg salad sandwich recipe. What's Up, Tiger Lily, Woody's first as a director, is a high concept film, sporadically funny though largely silly and pointless. Not so much a hint of his genius that would follow but rather a forgettable instance of his early career infantilism.
