S*P*Y*S is a 1974 comedy about two bumbling men who are spies and targeted for elimination by the KGB. The film was directed by Irvin Kershner, and stars Elliott Gould, Donald Sutherland, and Zouzou. The film was screened at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn't entered into the main competition.
The asterisks in the title are designed to remind users of MASH, which also starred Gould and Sutherland, and whose title is generally rendered with the same asterisks. Beyond this, there is no connection between the films.
