Product description

Product Description

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!

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

To be honest, you just can't beat 'The Persuaders!' The funny love, hate relationship between the contrasting characters of Danny Wilde and Lord Brett Sinclair, is a true inspiration. Roger Moore's delivery is absolutely sensational and its refreshing to see him directing a few episodes here and there. Each episode's plot is written with a good attention to detail. They are also very well scripted and with Tony's free-styling, it makes the series a whole lot more realistic. The actual picture and sound quality of the DVD is also something to be commended for, especially considering that 'The Persuaders' was done in 1971-1972. Its a real shame that there wasn't another series though! If not for the reception it received and the responsibilities Roger had in becoming the new JB, they probably would've gone on to do another. Also, the last episode ('Someone Waiting') I don't think quite finalized the end to the series enough. It could've had a more thought-provoking ending. But other than that, for one series, the characters of Danny and Brett had been explored enough to captivate audiences and leave them anticipating more.

Fond memories of my childhood. Tony Curtis was amusing & my favourite. Seems a little corny now but nevertheless have enjoyed watching it.
