It's hard to believe that some of you remember or saw this show. The show was really a precursor to the Bond movies and for TV in its day, was produced very well. My family and I loved watching David Hedison and had a special reason for watching Luciana Paluzzi. She is our cousin and we were all so proud of her. Ben, your comments about how beautiful she was is spot on, but Luciana was/is extremely smart as well. My grandfather, Vincenzo Paluzzi, told us that before being discovered as an actress, Luciana was studying to be a scientist. She went on to play opposite Sean Connery in the James Bond movie Thunderball. Today, an updated show like would be a hit...are you listening J.Abrams?
