The Maltese Dagger
29 April 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Legacy of Death" is the second straight Terry Nation takeoff of a movie classic, in this case, 1941's "The Maltese Falcon," quite inferior to "Noon Doomsday," based on 1952's "High Noon." Henley Farrer (Richard Hurndall) gets the plot underway, sending the 'Dagger of 1000 Deaths' to the unsuspecting John Steed, who proceeds to encounter a bevy of fortune hunters desperate to acquire it. Stratford Johns ("The Frighteners") plays Sidney Street (getting all the best lines), Ronald Lacey ("The Joker") plays Humbert Green, and Ferdy Mayne plays Baron von Orlak, with smaller roles going to John Hollis ("Warlock," "The Cybernauts," "The Superlative Seven"), Kynaston Reeves ("What the Butler Saw"), and Vic Wise ("Square Root of Evil").
