Neil Connery pulls no punches in 1967's Operation Kid Brother. He hired Lois Maxwell, who appeared as secretary Miss Moneypenny in the five official Bond films released up to that point, along with Bernard Lee, who played M in the first 11 Bond films. Adolfo Celi, who played the villain in 1965’s Thunderball, appeared in Operation Kid Brother. It gets quite frantic at times.”When Operation Kid Brother was released in the United States in October 1967, the reviews were not kind. Operation Kid Brother eventually wound up on the satirical movie commentary series Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 1997.
