They mention "The Conqueror" in the trivia segment. It starred John Wayne as Genghis Khan, which is one of the worst examples of a white guy imitating another race. It's also famous because it was filmed downwind from a nuclear testing site. By 1981, 91 people who worked on the movie developed cancer, and 46 died from it.

0:22:08 'Arachnophobia' reference. As if I needed another reason to love this show!

Don'tcha just love how the characters refer to Soviet propaganda with an obvious disdain when the film they're in is blatant US propaganda?

I can't believe there's a reference to Samuel T. Coleridge's "Kubla Khan" poem in this episode. That is just downright esoteric!

I think this might be it: the worst movie they ever did. Holy cow. Completely incomprehensible and incompetent movie making.

I wish they had done more Bela Lugosi films --- Trace's impression is spot-on and hilarious.

Too funny! Countless references to at least 3 Kubrick films. Thank you MST3K

Ram Chips - Good things: Tom Servo's phone conversations and that North By Northwest was made the same year. Bad thing: The whole sorry ending beginning with Agent (What a dope) John getting gunned down in his inconspicuous white coat. As Crow said, Oh, I just don't understand this - we lost the commie threat? WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!!!

Audrey Hepburn coming down the stairs in My Fair Lady = Gypsy looking drop dead gorgeous in her tin foil bow. For the first time I noticed her eyelashes!

I read somewhere that they gave Tom Servo a haircut because of complaints that his gumball head was a distraction against the movie screen. It didn't last long, fortunately.

I like the idea of Crow's punctuation jokes, but as a grammar geek, I cringe every time because almost every one of them is incorrect. I gotta learn to let go!

The Soviets made their own version of this film which was nearly a shot for shot copy of ours, except their “British Agent” had more of a Flemish accent and “any suburb USA” Hazlet was replaced by idyllic "easy livin'" Krasnoznamensk.
Incidentally: their chunky tie-shunning truck driver went on to serve as General Secretary of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, just before their 1991 collapse.

I refuse to believe that Gumby and Pokey were ever involved in any kind of Commie activities.

I was practically screaming at the screen. ICBM's were adapted as orbital launch vehicles, not the other way around!

Loved the "Airplane" call back at 36:00. "The white zone is for loading and unloading only." I laughed until they took me to a hospital. A hospital, what is it? It's a big building with doctors and medical equipment, but that's not important now!

Barry Mahon, the director of this movie, was also the director of Errol Flynn's last movie, "Assault of the Cuban Rebel Girls" (IMDB lists it simply as "Cuban Rebel Girls"). And for Rifftrax fans, he also directed the Thumbelina part of "Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny".
