An extremely enjoyable romp with a twist in the tail ending. Some great Malta locations including The Phonecia Hotel in Malta - best place to stay on the island. This ITC TV movie had been very well restored with vibrant colours which emphasise the absolutely outrageous fashions which get more outlandish as the movie progresses. Peter Wyngarde could carry off the Wardrobe in this film (and would probably match things better) but on Macnee they are hilariously inappropriate. Macnee is somewhat miscast as the roguish conman but he puts a lot of humour into his performance and Herbert Lom is good fun too. The extras include two short interviews with Macnee and one with Lom. They are nothing to do with the feature but they are entertaining anyway and Macnee is a fantastic raconteur.
This is very entertaining if you like vintage British tv/ ITC productions.

This is a great Crime Caper that is very much of it's time,though it must be said that Macnee looks his usual Stylish self in all that 60's Fashion has to offer i.e. Huge Collared Shirts and Bow ties so Big they could suffocate you!!!!!.Very much stuck in a time bubble but a decent story and though you see the twist A Mile off it's still good Fun.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 10 May 2011
Format: DVD
Reuniting both the star and many behind the cameras alumni from The Avengers (producer Julian Wintle, director Sidney Hayers, writer Philip Levene, composer Laurie Johnson, cinematographer Alan Hume among them), Mister Jerico is a highly enjoyable conman caper that's more entertaining than many a big budget heist movie. Patrick Macnee, wearing the kind of horrendous `now' late 60s outfits that Steed would never be caught dead in, is the conman of the title out to take Herbert Lom's shady millionaire for half a million by selling him his own diamond by passing it off as its legendary lost twin - only every time he steals the `real' diamond, it turns out to be a fake. Cue plenty of neat twists and turns and a romantic rivalry when a mysterious Frenchwoman turns up also claiming to have the diamond, with Levene and David T. Chantler's story keeping things moving along with a smile on your face even if one of the big twists is a little too easy to forsee. Made as a US TV movie but playing in the UK as the supporting feature to Carry On Up the Jungle on its theatrical release, it's well suited to the second half of a double-bill - perhaps not enough star power to pass muster as the main feature, but a surprisingly delightful added bonus.

Network's UK DVD also includes some vintage TV interviews with Lom (promoting The Trail of the Pink Panther) and Macnee, the latter discussing everything from his lesbian mother making him wear kilts as a child to remove all hints of men from the house to his undistinguished war record and, naturally, the various incarnations of The Avengers (he felt Benny Hill played a better Steed than he did in The New Avengers!).
