Set against an appealingly sunny Sicilian backdrop, the film finds Simon Templar, an elegant thief and ethical busybody, outraged when a British banker is murdered after he recognizes an old colleague-turned-Mafia kingpin.

Ffolkes (Sir Roger Moore) was far removed from the type of character he was known, a suave, debonair, charming, sophisticated ladies' man. If anything, Ffolkes was actually a cranky, moody, and cantankerous misogynist. He is bearded and somewhat shabbily dressed, as opposed to his previous image as clean shaven, and a dapper dresser. His affections are reserved for his cats, of which he has many, rather than women, of which he has none. See more »
Ffolkes appears as a real perfectionist, but after overwhelming Kramer he doesn't make sure that he is really dead and can't push the button any more. See more »

Roger Moore sure shows his versatility as an actor in this film, He play a character though not very unlike his James Bond "persona" physically and intellectually , but quite different than his soave debonair character typical of the bond films.
In Ffolkes he plays an eccentric former British Navy diver who is called upon to swart a terrorist attack on the North sea oil platforms. Anthony Perkins also gives an excellent performance as the head of a group of terrorist who forcibly takes control of a supply ship and threaten to blow up some oil platforms in the North Sea.
Moore's character is what make the entire film worth watching. He's an eccentric tough guy, who loves cats and a good shot of whiskey, he's also highly opinionated. To the point that drives some to dislike him.
Watch this film, It's non-stop action, and excellent dialoge.
