Remake of "Death of a Great Dane"
23 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The 50,000 Breakfast" is the third and last remake of a Cathy Gale episode that, like the original, was the weakest of the three. Switching the gender of the central character creates more of a spark this time, and the superior production values far surpass the sloppy original. A ventriloquist is injured in a minor crash, discovered to have diamonds in his stomach; later, he is unceremoniously killed in his hospital bed. Steed does most of the bargaining while Emma visits the widow (Pauline Delany, "The Golden Eggs"). Yolande Turner ("The Girl from Auntie" and "How to Succeed....at Murder") has a field day as Miss Pegram, assisted by Cecil Parker, replacing John Laurie in fine style. Also appearing are David Langton ("The Mauritius Penny" and "November Five"), Cardew Robinson ("The Interrogators"), Jon Laurimore ("Honey for the Prince"), Richard Owens ("Who Was That Man I Saw You With?"), Nigel Lambert ("The Master Minds"), and Anneke Wills ("Dressed to Kill"), who at the time was married to Michael Gough.
