Trivia Edit

The theme of a villain trying to control the world with doubles of the world's leaders was used in the 1979 movie "The Wild Wild West Revisited"

A continuity goof is when Gordon is knocking out Briane's henchmen in order to use his face as a duplicate mask of disguise {Shades of Mission Impossible{!} The goof shows Briane spying on the disguised Gordon with the Henchmen beside Briane-usually a knocked out villain doesn't recover that quickly!
