Miss Moneypenny kisses Commander Gideon in gratitude
18 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lois Maxwell (Miss Moneypenny) held my attention in this 1966 episode of "Gideons Way" which starred John Gregson in this long running TV series.Baddie Donald Sutherland is in a plot with an American conman to kidnap an American millionaire's daughter for a ransom of $1,000,000.There are some quaint production points.First to see bobbies walking on the beat which you do not see these days but did then in the 1960s.Second an art shop would have taken out references on their employees.I am gradually re-acquainting myself with Gideons way working through all the uploaded episodes on Youtube.com.I love to see again the cars, fashion and dolly birds at the time England won the Fifa World cup!I gave this episode 6/10.
