British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than advertised, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.
Four prominent men from different countries place their lives on the line in the pursuit of justice all over the world.
Somebody should help me out with this as there are absolutely no clues or mnemonics in the title page. After all, it was over 40 years ago when I saw the series.
OK. There are four men chosen by an international convention (The International Court of Justice? Interpol?) to track down criminals all over the world. They are policemen and judges. They are not even armed nor are they martial arts experts but they get their men through sheer physical courage, their knowledge of police work and the law. I particularly enjoyed the episodes with Jack Hawkins and Richard Conte.
Although I have seen Jack Hawkins in less than heroic roles (as a thief in a Playhouse 90 episode and as a cynical General Allenby in Lawrence of Arabia), I have never been dismayed when I saw him portraying rather unsavory characters. But I got a jolt when I saw Richard Conte after so many years as a Mafia Don in The Godfather because my memory of him was as one of the Four Just Men.
