Product description

Product Description

Opening two episodes of the cult Seventies action series. In 'Overture', playboy Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore) and millionaire oil tycoon Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) are brought together as a crime-fighting team by the crusading Judge Fulton. 'Angie... Angie' sees Danny attempting to break off the partnership when Fulton suspects one of his friends from way back of being a hitman.


Between heroic spells as the Saint and James Bond, Roger Moore was teamed with Tony Curtis in this 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 uppercrust 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 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 DoyleThe Professionals) that ran over the screen in the 70s, sublimating their feelings for each other by pulling out their guns and popping off at baddies.

Volume One includes: "Overture" which features a gangster who has faked his own death and a brunette with a birthmark, with guest star Imogen (When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth) Hassall; and "Angie... Angie", which concerns a murder at the Cannes Film Festival, with Larry (F Troop) Storch. --Kim Newman
