Zeta One (1969) from Tuna

Zeta One (1969), which IMDB calls The Love Factor, is an early British sex farce, and send-up of James Bond films. The super agent's name is even James Word, and his boss is "W." As the film opens, the office secretary (Yutte Stensgaard) seduces him, first with a game of strip poker, then later in bed, and pumps him for information about his most recent assignment. He was sent to find out what arch villain Major Bourdon, who is trying to take over a group of female aliens who recruit by kidnapping and brainwashing Earth women, to increase his power.


Yutte Stensgaard shows all three Bs, and Carolanne Hawkins, Anna Gael, and a host of unknown women show breasts.

The alien women spend some time out of their clothes, some with either pasties or their nipples painted blue.  In the end, James knows too much about the women's society to be left on earth, so they capture him and press him into stud duty. In this early attempt at a skin flick, there is not enough nudity or sex to watch for that aspect, the plot is lame, and the acting is awful.

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDB readers say 4.0/10.
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a D+.
