I remember seeing this movie when it first came out. OK let's be honest here no one deserved any acting awards but for pure entertainment value it's terrific. As for the cast reviews well let's leave Lewis Collins until last. Judy Davies had not been that long known in the industry and as as we all know has gone gone on to do real quality work. Edward Woodward gave a standard performance as the police commissioner and Tony Doyle (deceased) was perfect as the tough SAS colonel. Richard Widmark and Robert Webber were both at the tail end of their careers and probably only did the movie for the pay, but still gave satisfying performances. As for Lewis Collins well here is an actor who never forged the career that I hoped he would. I had the extreme privilege of meeting Lewis in Perth, Western Australia in 1984 when he was performing "Deathtrap". Here we really got to see Lewis shine on the stage. Lewis is a what you see is what you get type of person. His image off screen is the same as on he is an action man. Lewis wasn't really acting in "who dares wins" he was being himself, and as the immortal Spencer Tracy said to a young Burt Reynolds when Reynolds asked him for advise on acting, Mr Tracy's response was "just don't let anyone catch you doing it" (acting that is). So there's the review for Lewis's performance he wasn't acting but being himself, which is the greatest compliment you can pay an actor. He would have made an immortal James Bond and bettered them all i believe, but it wasn't to be. His legacy was to give us Bodie who was up there with Bond but at least we got him on a weekly basis.
