Background to the Making Of
7 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mission Monte Carlo, like three other Persuaders "movies" - Sporting Chance, London Conspiracy and The Switch - is, sadly, just a compilation/re-release of episodes from the original 1971 series of 24. Lew Grade's ITC did some topping and tailing/cutting and pasting to release them theatrically in Europe and for cable channels in the States several years after the original broadcast hence the mid 70's release dates.(ITC did this with a number of series including Space: 1999 after their first run) to squeeze a little more cash from the project. They were the first Persuaders releases on rental and sell thru video in the UK in the early - mid 80s and as such very welcome at the time, as the series itself had long since stopped being repeated by ITV. They are disappointing without that wonderful theme tune and proper credits, but not so much a rip off just a stop gap.
