McGill hunts for treasure
13 April 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Richard Bradford said that several 'Suitcase' episodes were originally intended for other shows. 'Find The Lady' gives the impression of having been planned for either 'The Baron' or 'The Saint'.

McGill is in Rome when he is visited by 'Mori' ( John Garrie ), a filthy little man who refers to him as 'Macagill'. The Rossini jewels have been stolen, and Mori thinks the thief is 'Guilio' ( Maxwell Shaw ), Italy's answer to 'Raffles'. Mac is then called in by the local police, who want him to recover the missing gems. 'The Commandante' ( Patrick Cargill ) confiscates his passport so that he cannot leave the country until the job is done. At a specially arranged rendezvous in a park, Mori meets Guilio. Mac is waiting to nab the gems. But things go wrong and a brief gun battle ensues. In the confusion, Mori runs off with the jewels and manages to hide them before Guilio kills him. Before he passes on, he whispers: 'Signora'...

A fairly uneventful adventure, boasting lots of talk, mostly between Mac and the lovely 'Francesca' ( Jeanne Roland ). Clever old Mori hid the jewels in some catacombs, leading to a climactic fight - and double-cross - there. Francesca turns out to be Guilio's sister.

Patrick Cargill is suitably sinister as the 'Commandante', more so than the jewel thief he is intent on arresting. Maxwell Shaw ( Guilio ) was married to casting director, Rose Tobias Shaw. 1967 was a good year for lovely Jeanne Roland - in addition to this, she appeared in not one but two Bond movies: 'You Only Live Twice' as Bond's masseuse, and as 'Captain of the Guards' in the spoof version of 'Casino Royale'. After recording 'The Champions' episode 'A Case Of Lemmings', she retired from acting. Carlos Douglas, the waiter in 'Duty Free', plays a hotel receptionist. The hotel lobby, incidentally, looks like the one in 'Sweet Sue' ( it probably was ).
