Storyline

What at first seems like a push from the local gangsters to get with the program turns out to be a wide conspiracy involving the Scotland Yard, Soviet spies and a lot of money. Written by Anonymous

Curtis + Moore are the Persuaders!
12 March 2002 | by (Seinäjoki, Finland) – See all my reviews

It´s actually not a movie, It´s just 2 episodes of the fantastic persuaders TV series put in one tape. The show was made in between 1970-1971 and this Sporting Chance, as they call it, is one of the best in the series. The chemistry between Moore and Curtis is incredible, they just seem to spur each other into better performances. These two episodes offer great action, fantastic comedy and lots of excitement, and I personally recommend this to everybody!
