* FakeAmerican: Our hero, whom the Italians gave the most American 1960's name they could think of ("Bart") and the most Midwestern last name they could think of ("Fargo"). Result: FailOSuckyName.
* FollowTheLeader: One of many, ''many'' films to try and ape the spy-craze of the the '60s.

* LeaveTheCameraRunning: First when the scientists are meeting in the beginning. After they are cleared through the checkpoint, the film spends over ten seconds just looking at the feed of a security camera with ''nothing of interest happening at all''. Later, the camera tracks all the members of the conference just walking through a hallway and taking an elevator downstairs. No music, no dialogue, nothing important happening.

* NotableOriginalMusic: Much of the music in the movie sounds a lot like Herbie Hancock's ''Watermelon Man'' and the catchy "Badupadupadada" for Bart Fargo's LeitMotif.

Also known as ''Il Raggio Infernale,'' this Italo-Spanish spy {{film}} was one of the many to ride the wave of [[Film/JamesBond Bond]]-style knock-off spy thrillers in the [[TheSixties '60s]] and [[TheSeventies '70s]]. The plot, such as it is, follows the adventures of American super spy Bart Fargo as he chases down the kidnapped professor Carmichael, creator of the eponymous death ray (which, the professor must stress, was only created to be used for "peaceful purposes..."), and save him from a [[NebulousEvilOrganization poorly-defined evil organization]] which doesn't share the professor's...unique world view. Following the trail (and bouncy soundtrack) from Italy to Spain, Fargo must contend with the usual assortment of spies, FemmeFatale and one really, ''really'' violent UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln (trust us on this one) in order to make the world safe for all peace-waging death ray-wanting countries everywhere.
