Deadlier Than The Male....?
7 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Gene Barry' Segment Episode

When Millionaire Publisher Glenn Howard (Gene Barry) travels 'across the pond' to London and is hosting an exclusive lavish party.... is suddenly gatecrashed by the formidable ultra sharp British female lawyer Bethany Cromwell (Honor Blackman, of 'Goldfinger' and 'The Avengers' fame), who duly serves Howard among others present at the party....

....with a British High Court summons on a Libel charge !

The calculating and razor sharp Ms.Cromwell is representing racing driver Anthony Malcolm (Brian Bedford) in a fraud case.

Maurice Evans guests as 'Harold Wyler', in this fascinating legal 'game of chess' that Glenn Howard finds himself embroiled in while visiting his British branch of Howard Publications.

Susan Saint James' award winning character of Research Assistant 'Peggy Maxwell' once again is featured in a 'Gene Barry' segment of the show, as Peggy accompanies her overall Boss on his visit to the United Kingdom.

A strong performance by both Honor Blackman and Maurice Evans enhance this compelling tale which sees Gene Barry on impeccable top form.
