Woody Allen used this film, combined with footage from the third installment Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kayaku no taru (国際秘密警察:火薬の樽, International Secret Police: Keg of Gunpowder), to create his directorial debut, What's Up, Tiger Lily?, in which the original dialogue is redubbed in English to make the plot about a secret egg salad recipe.
Kitami is requested by the intelligence director, Suritai, to steal a large amount of money from the anti-government guerrillas who fund gangs from Gegen. However, once Kitami infiltrates a Gegen ship in disguise, he discovers there is no cash in the safe, only a cipher on a piece of paper.
