: : : The Persuaders!, Set 1

Story

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 women usually wind up with the women getting away and the heroes stuck with each other. Set 1 includes the first 13 episodes, running about 52 minutes each. --Kim Newman
