From Amazon.co.uk

Between heroic spells as the Saint and James Bond, Roger Moore was teamed with Tony Curtis in The Persuaders, a derivative but fun series about a couple of millionaire dilettante adventurers who swan around the world competing for the attention of beautiful women and getting involved in perplexing mysteries. Moore is Lord Brett Sinclair, an upper crust Brit of impeccable breeding, while Curtis is Danny Wilde, an up-from-the-streets self-made man whose trademark is a pair of brown gloves. The allegedly tasteful Brett and the crasser Danny both model a succession of garish early 70s fashions while their pursuits of duplicitous crumpet usually wind up with the women getting away and the heroes stuck with each other. Given all that, this may well be the most blatantly homoerotic of all the buddy television pairings (see the eponymous stars of Starsky and Hutch, Regan and Carter in The Sweeney, Bodie and Doyle of The Professionals) that ran ove! r the screen in the 70s, in which the male leads sublimated their feelings for each other by pulling out their guns and shooting at baddies. --Kim Newman

Product Description

Four more escapades for playboy crime-fighters Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) and Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore). In 'Powerswitch', Danny and Brett investigate the murder of a beautiful girl whose body is found floating in the Cote d'Azure. 'The Time and Place' (directed by Moore) sees the duo's attempts to help a pretty young woman, whose car has broken down, backfiring when the woman disappears without a trace and the body of a dead man is found nearby. In 'Someone Like Me', Danny encounters someone who is masquerading as Brett. Finally 'Anyone Can Play' sees Danny playing the roulette tables in Brighton as a result of being mistaken for a communist paymaster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia, but a very persuasive kind... 28 April 2004
Format:DVD
In the early seventies I was allowed to stay up late on friday nights towatch this series and I loved it. I remember being intrigued by the photoalbum style opening credits and the theme tune (composed by 007's JohnBarry) was one I never forgot. Encouraged by such rich memories I decidedto splash out on this complete collection in the hope that the adventuresof Lord Brett Sinclair and Danny Wilde would still prove to beentertaining and I'm pleased to say I was not to bedisappointed.
Housed in a nicely gaudy case these DVDs hark back to anera when television could still be happily entertaining without attemptingto explore the pressing social issues of the time. Of course the passageof time has left its mark, but that's all part of the fun. The costumes,the attitudes, the conveyor belt of British character acting talent andthe never quite believable plots merge together to provide fifty minuteslices of pure televisual escapism. Roger Moore and Tony Curtis play theirparts perfectly, ably assisted on occasion by their mentor the Judge,played by the excellent Laurence Naismith. Apparently further series wereplanned but underperformance in the American ratings proved to be theundoing of the idea and it was quickly dropped. Regretable in a way, butit saved the series from becoming tired and repetetive and leaves it withthe status of a cult classic. It's true to say that they don't make 'emlike this any more....

5.0 out of 5 stars Those were the days ... 2 July 2003
By Tyke VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
It's all here – everything you ever wanted to remember about the seventies but were afraid to look back at. The full collection of 24 wisecracking, Ferrari powered, Martini-sipping, dolly-squeezing episodes is a gallop down memory lane for people of a certain age, and a jaw-dropping peephole back in time for a younger generation. Memories are made of this.
Seventies style is the great – even historical – charm of this series. Fast cars, millionaires, casinos … a rollicking, over-the-top, sunshine Riviera lifestyle which offered a welcome relief from the tungsten-lit, meat-paste-sandwich existence endured by most of the TV audience of the day. In a 1971 Britain where the highlight of the year was being converted to natural gas, 'The Persuaders' larged it and with glitzy comic panache.
Tony Curtis and Roger Moore are perfectly matched in this tongue-in-cheek antique, bouncing ad-lib and repartee off each other like a seasoned double act, pistol in one hand, champagne glass in the other. The seeds of Moore's forthcoming Bond interpretation were clearly sown here.
Episode One introduces us to millionaire playboys Danny Wilde (Curtis) and Lord Brett Sinclair (Moore), who are thrust comically together by the machinations of former Judge Fulton, now in luxury retirement in the south of France. They take up the Judge's challenge, to bring to justice some of those who have escaped his judicial net in the past and subsequently Wilde and Sinclair joke, drink, flirt and punch their way through the series, always getting their man and surrounding themselves with tasty totty into the bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Persuaders Perfection! 20 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
At last!...The Special Edition of the classic 70's ITC series, "The Persuaders!" which includes all 24 uncut episodes wonderfully remastered (check out those beautiful colours!) in a 9-DVD Box Set. Crime fighting with Curtis & Moore has never been as clear and colourful.

This is truly a great testament to a series that still holds a special unique blend of action and thrills for it's audience even to this day, more so than the few people who class this series as the epitome of everything that reeked Seventies 'Cheese'. Nevetheless, it's a good 'cheese' and in-demand too!

There are also some great extras on this set which includes a documentary featuring some hair-raising stories about Tony Curtis, image galleries from every episode and audio commentaries plus lots more.

If you're a fan, you'll love this and 'Network' have done a fantastic job with this series just like their great work with 'The Sweeney' DVD sets.

You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars What? You still haven't bought this DVD? 29 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Get the whole series (there are four DVD's now). The Persuaders star Tony Curtis and Roger Moore, in a mix of Moore's humor and Curtis's lifestyle. If you like Roger Moore as James Bond, and/or Tony Curtis in his movies you'll like this series as well. If you have the money to spend then get the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and pre-order the 4th volume because you'll want them... The Persuaders are kind of a 'what me worry' style of detectives. Both have an extravagant lifestyle as millionaires and team up as detectives/agents for 'the good cause' to have a purpose in life (you'll understand this when you watch the first episode on the first volume).

5.0 out of 5 stars Each episode makes me "feel good", every time... 29 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The Persuaders: Roger Moore and Tony Curtis, a fantastic team. Shame that the series lasted so short. So there probably won't be too many DVD's in total (I just pre-ordered the 4th volume). Each episode is a blend of Roger Moore's well known "Bond" humor with Tony Curtis's life-style. All DVD's in the Persuaders series come higly recommended. Expect old fashioned good-TV, great (british/undercooled) humor and entertainment, just no special (DVD) effects.
