Diabolik's like Lupin III without any charm or appeal.

Like Joe Don Baker, Celi was in a James Bond movie; unlike Baker, he was the Bond nemesis/top villain. It was the non-MGM/Broccoli re-make of 'Thunderball', and the last Sean Connory Bond gig (aptly titled "Never Say Never Again". He was the commandant of the Italian prison camp in the film adaptation of 'Von Ryan's Express' (which I re-watched recently), as well. He may have been in the seminal 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly', as I recall, too...I think I remember him as the sadistic Union Army prison camp warden who made the rag-tag band play to mask the sound of his guy beating the crap out of Eli Wallach. He was certainly hanging around the desert movie sets of Toscana at the time...I'd have to look at the G,B,atU. titles (or just watch it again; I have the 3+hr European cut from which the 2 1/2 hr. US release was culled, but haven't seen it for a long time. I spend too much time over here) Celi seemed to be having a good old time here, and gleefully chewed the scenery. No less, he made the stinger and got the last word(s) on the [gulp!] 11 year run: "Is that stud?......Coming?"

Love ya, Brains and bots! Like those well-programmed losers on the bus-line, I'm going to go watch 'The Crawling Eye' now.

Before Servo said it, I thought the same thing. All of Diabolics' plans involve hopefully not getting shot by a hail of bullets, and dumb luck.

That gold ingot is way too big to be just twenty tonnes. Eighty would be more like it.

Even eighty tonnes would be about $90 million US. That sort of figure wouldn't have seriously dented even Italy's cash reserves.

I'm sorry. Things like that just get to me sometimes. I put way too much thought into these things. I really should just relax.

A lot of the dialog and sound effects in this movie were heavily sampled and used as intros & outros in the Messer Chups Album "Crazy Price"... which belongs to the Ipecac Records catalogue...which is a record label co-owned by Mike Patton...there just thought I'd share that : P

The idea of Diabolik being like Robin Hood reminds me of a line from Blackadder series 3 in which Baldrick is describing a famous highwayman:
Baldrick: They say he's halfway to becoming the next Robin Hood.
Blackadder: Why halfway?
Baldrick: Well, he steals from the rich, but he hasn't quite gotten 'round to giving to the poor yet...

Also, RIP MST3k (*tear*)
