"Nitro and gylcerine... and I light the fuse!"

Two millionaire playboys - one a peer of the realm, born into money, and the other a self-made man who fought his way out of the New York slums - are conned by a retired judge into righting wrongs in a series that combines action, style, humour and panache in large quantities!

Regarded by many as the finest of Lew Grade s ITC film series, The Persuaders! stars Roger Moore and Tony Curtis as the mismatched playboys with an eye for the ladies and a penchant for landing themselves in trouble.
Alongside all 24 episodes are a wealth of special features, including:

THE MORNING AFTER - REMEMBERING THE PERSUADERS!

A feature-length documentary with contributions from Tony Curtis and Roger Moore, producer Robert S. Baker, production executive Johnny Goodman and others.

Format: DVD
This is THE series of the seventies. Aston Martins and Ferraris (no eco-guilt), Martinis (no daily units), cigars (no health warnings), kipper ties and incredible lapels (exuberant taste), girls, exotic locations, and plots that were a triumph of fun over angst and gritty realism (we had enough of that on those mean streets of the Royal County of Berkshire!).

Moore is superb, delivering lines like "I cleaned my own shoes" with trademark deep voice and super-intense acting (both eyebrows in action) while Curtis conforms to most Home County ideals of a self-made American. Moore delivers the greatest pick-up line in history, "My name is Lord Brett Sinclair. Brett to my friends - you may call me darling" which we all rejoiced in adapting when in the Lower Sixth. Our heroes right wrongs, the violence is under control and of the "manly sock to the jaw" type in the main, and the plots are undemanding but fun.

I had not seen the series since it was first shown on TV (I regarded it as a lifestyle training session) and it has held up well. It may be dated in terms of what can be done by camera-crews now but it was nearly cutting edge then - and certainly was not set-bound as so often the fabulous ITC series were. Watching the episodes unfurl it was surprising how much I remembered from some three decades ago which confirms the impact it had.

The opening music is by the fab John Barry (Themeology: The Best of John Barry)and I still think it is one of the best he has ever done, matched by clever opening credits which give the entire back-story of the two characters.

Over 40 years later, and there's nothing really new that can be added about the content of the series. You either like it or dismiss it. Frothy harmless fun... Tony Curtis stil trying to prove his agility in middle age, and the lead cars and fashions not really looking out of place in today's society... However, if you're wondering about the HD transfers than this box set won't let you down. There's no grain and the colours are so bright and vivid that sometimes it's like looking through a window back into the early seventies. In fact because of this, the only thing which lets the show down is the scenes involving back protection. A pity some of these couldn't be colour corrected and revamped? On the whole though, the remasters are 99 percent. I did spot a hair in the lens in one scene and a blemish in another. Somehow curiously missed - maybe because they were on the edges on the screen? But this is sheer nit-picking, since you only notice these more due to the rest of the episodes looking so lush and re-polished. Extras are also great and packaged with the care and attention we've come to expect of Network. All we need now of course is for Network to speed up the blu-ray releases of other old ITC series? Randall and Hopkirk next please anyone?

Format: DVD
Recently bought this boxset thinking it wouldnt be as good as i remember it,but i was wrong it was just as enjoyable nearly 30 years after i first seen it as a 14 year-old.In most episodes ,certainly not all,the humour between the two leads works very well,the story lines are reasonable and with the usual cast of supporting actors for ITC the standard of acting is high.The most pleasing thing about this boxset was the splendid extras.Although only 3 commentaries is disappointing ,the documentary "the morning after"(48:50),the dutch tv programme "avroskoop"(19:43) and tony curtis interview from 1974(14:37)fill in any blank spaces.There is also top of the pops footage(2:14) and news and advertising footage(10:00),also episode trailers and titles.The final extra is an episode of the saint "the ex-king of diamonds" which is regarded as the pilot for the persuaders,where the saint teams up with an american on the riviera,which has a commentary with roger moore and others.There is also a 24 page booklet and 4 movie versions(where two unrelated episodes are strung together),this ,i think, was a waste of two discs but some may enjoy them.So all in all a very good set.

I'm very pleased for the HD transfer of this fantastic TV Series. I appreciated very much the richest extra photogalleries also. Audio language is English stereo 2.0 only (a pity other languages like french and - obviously for me - italian, countries where the series has got great success, are not available) with english subtitles. Commentary not subtitled. The 24 episodes are shared in 5 blu ray discs. The remaining discs are dvds which mainly contain the feature-length movies compilations. The box set is completed with a very interesting series guide booklet (over 150 pages) by Andrew Pixley. In my judgement, a "must" for every fan.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
They don't make 'em like this anymore - a top British TV star (Moore) and a top Hollywood star (Curtis) are teamed together to foil crimes and mysteries at home and abroad (usually the French Riviera!) with a mixture of thrills, spills and laughter. At the time it was the most expensive TV show and was originally aimed at the 'all-important' American market; sadly, it did not take off over there so the intended number of episodes was reduced. I loved it when I was 10 years old and I'm looking forward to watching the whole series again. It's a pity there's no-one like Lew Grade - who commissioned the show, along with the likes of The Saint, Danger Man and The Prisoner - around these days!
