Great production values and costumes
2 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Years ago I saw this movie on television here in the United States. Although a fairly standard "private eye investigation - "who done it," the costumes and cinematography were gorgeous. Chad Everett. Anjanette Comer, and Joanne Dainton (where's she been?) never looked better. Chad is at his best playing a calm, self assured, leading man (Joe Gannon on Medical Center, among others). Also, the British have a seemingly inexhaustible supply of great character actors (Roy Kinnear, etc.) who do such great memorable work with small roles. I would like to see this movie released to DVD. Does anyone out there know anything about this possibility?
