An Old Flame !

OK, I watched it in the early 1990s, while I was too young. Thanks to the second channel of our national TV in Egypt. At the time the materials were being aired without any commercials; I know, I discovered lately how I was lucky to an extent I wasn't aware of !

It is all about how to trick the tricker. This subject is real interesting but when it comes to TV, a few shows along the years dealt with it. It's obvious that with "Mission Impossible - 1988", "Vengeance Unlimited - 1998" and "Hustle - 2004" one show every decade got to recreate the subject with a new format.

This time I loved the theme of how the intellectual people can beat the street hustler or the powerful tycoon, if they wanted and united. Among the tricks of the plot I liked the most the collage scheme; it studied the real desire of that man and how far would he go to fulfill it.

I recall that (Maryam d'Abo) was hot in here. But (Edward Asner) was the one who stole the show with his frightful charisma and harsh personality. I enjoyed it altogether. There is a smart and thrilling sense all over it. Some works are made to be stuck on memory. This one is, and for the good reasons. Strangely none of the works that used to be aired in our national TV back then wasn't memorable, and for the good reasons too !
