Did You Know?


A fun connection. Jane Merrow played Susan Rushton in The Avengers' "Mission . . . Highly Improbable" in 1967. In 1970 she played Lady Cora Weston in Mission: Impossible's "Lover's Knot". She did the spoof/homage/rip-off/compliment show first. See more »


Without giving away spoilers, the last scene is an interior shot of four people in a car - two in the front, two in the back seat. When we see the car from the exterior (on the road), there is no one in the back seat. See more »


[first lines]
James Phelps: Commander Patterson was being blackmailed by a group of enemy agents. They were after the unscrambler code for the radio telephones here at the embassy. Something went wrong and they killed him.
Marvin Rogers: Well, how did Patterson get involved in the first place?
Paris: Through Lady Weston. Seduction and blackmail. They're her weapons and she's expert with them.

A lovely lady spy steals Paris's heart, but he soldiers on.
23 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the pared down crew (no Peter Lupus, no girl-of-the-week), the acting in this one is a cut above the average for both the regulars and the guests, especially lovely Jane Merrow. Peter Graves as Jim as a dashing military man turned obsessed and distraught gambler fills his part in the plot, and has a little fun, as well. Leonard Nimoy, playing determinedly against type, goes all dreamy-eyed for a villainous lady, while the dual personalities of the spy "K" keeps his identity secret for quite some time. And instead of exiting the scene in their trusty old van, our heroes head for Scotland Yard in the villain's own Rolls Royce. Now that's class!
