Storyline

Eddy Myers, a criminal who absconded from justice in Britain and lives in luxury in Spain under an assumed name, until he is recognized by a young and overly zealous British police officer on holiday. After his extradition to England, Myers offers information about his cronies in return for a reduced sentence, but insists he will only talk to the young officer who was responsible for his arrest in Spain. Thus a cat-and-mouse game between the charismatic and manipulative criminal and his interrogator begins.

Quotes

Eddie Myers: At first, the dollars were in small denominations, tens, fives, ones. But later, round November, on exchange day, I obtained samples of fifties and hundreds, two million dollars. You should use a deodorant.

It's a Shame
30 December 1998 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that A&E's pitifully-edited version of Framed is the only one most American audiences have seen; for it showcases one of Timothy Dalton's most striking performances. As Eddie Myers, Dalton is charming, frightening, slimy, and charismatic. Down to the last scene, you're never sure what he will do. Hopefully, the full PAL version translated to NTSC will eventually be available in the US. In the meantime, watch the A&E version (they replay it occasionally). It's better than nothing.
