Someone’s remade Return of the Cybernauts.

I wonder if this is a licensed product and if not are Studiocanal aware of this?

Where has this been hiding?

Just when I think I've seen everything connected to The Avengers, something new turns up.

Shame the closing credits are not included.

The description says it's from 1968. I suspect it's an unlicenced remake, as we've never heard anything about it. It's a really fascinating find, though. Thanks for posting it, norw27! Very Happy

Startling find!

It has so much in common with the episode as transmitted that I'd not be surprised if it was officially licensed.

So many questions spring to mind!

Las Luchadiras vs el Robot Asesino (Robot Assassin?) appears to have been filmed by a company called Cinematographica Calderon S.A. in 1968 and released in Mexico on January 9th 1969.

The Steed equivalent who was a police detective called Arturo, played by Joaquin Cordero, whose acting career appeared confined to Mexico. Arturo’s girlfriend, the lady wrestler Gaby (the Emma Peel counterpart), was portrayed by Regina Torné another performer to restrict her appearances within the confines of homeland.

There were several of these Mexican female wrestling movies during the sixties, with Wrestling Women vs the Aztec Mummy coming to mind.

Remarkably, it is now possible to watch this film, I suspected that they took a lot from episode, but not to such an extent. Previously, information about this film was published in French blog "Steed's Secret", but there was no video.

http://steedsecrets.canalblog.com/archives/2011/10/29/22510108.html

Mexican filmmakers apparently found the cybernaut very tempting idea to create a remake. Wonder, may be they did other films with the ideas from the episodes The Avengers? Rolling Eyes

Just found that myself! Smile

Appears to be 1973, not 1968, though the end credits are obviously more recently made, perhaps for a home video release?

It was first shown in Mexico in 1969. Wink

It turns out that the film was shown in cinema theatres in many countries, in this case IMDB can be trusted. Additional information, which not on IMDB.

O louco criador de monstros (Brasil)
Women Wrestlers vs. the Robot Killer [EUA)
Les catcheuses contre le robot assassin (France)
Sex Monster (EUA, export version)

End credits clearly state MCMLXXIII (1973), though as I say, these credits were remade so it could be an titling error.

Clearly, Alan, then most likely this is year release of the film in one of the countries. Smile Wink
Mexico or the other Spanish-speaking countries? Rolling Eyes
Well, under title "Las Luchadoras vs el Robot Asesino" this is only held there (though I could be wrong, but my research say about this).

Glad, anti-clockwise, that you appreciated it. Wink

This stuff shows us that the film was not so much the little-known at the time.

The whole style of the end titles looks much later, and also video generated (as opposed to being made on film), so I'd guess at a home video release in Mexico or another Spanish-speaking territory. Of course this would have been the 1980s at the earliest, and the copyright date shown is obviously in error quite possibly mistaking MCMLXVIII (1968) for MCMLXXIII (1973).
