Storyline

John Drake visits the Arabian coast to investigate illegal slave trading. Disguised as a slave trader himself, his questions meet with strong resistance from both locals and an Englishman who seems intent on keeping him away. He believes that proof of the human trading will come from a Moukta who supposedly employs slaves in his diamond mine. Gaining the aid of a foreign woman in exchange for an offer of help, he sets out to locate the mine and gather the necessary evidence. Written by Twenty Penguins

Pretty good aside from the painted kid...
26 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Danger Man" ("The Blue Veil") is very good, although it surprised me to see one of the main characters painted! Yes, to make a boy appear to be from the Middle East or North Africa (the exact country isn't sure), they took a British kid and slathered on the dark paint or some dye. It's a bit silly, though otherwise the show is quite good.

Drake (Patrick McGoohan) has been called to sneak into a country and determine who is behind the slave industry. To hide who he really is, he pretends to be a dirty, sleazy bum--a guy interested in doing anything for a buck. To heighten this image, he acts like a drunk and is pretty convincing. Not surprisingly, he's able to get the goods BUT also picks up a woman along the way who is in need of his help.

Overall, this is a very good episode--worth seeing and worth your time.
