Storyline

Jeff is acting as a bodyguard to a beauty queen, Anne Soames, who wants to visit the Public Records Office. An intrigued Marty watches as she uses a special pair of glasses to cut the alarm and later a file is stolen by a man named Pargiter. When Jeff pursues him, Pargiter explains that the stolen document reveals him to be the rightful king of England - with his two heavies as noble lords. He condemns Jeff as a heretic, tying him up along with Anne, who has outlived her usefulness, and leaving them to die in a burning building. However, Marty sets off the fire alarm, the pair are rescued and Pargiter and his heavies are arrested. Written by don @ minifie-1

Bad Record...
7 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recently picked up the Region 2 DVD set, ITC at 50 - one episode of each of the main ITC series'. These were mostly the pick of the crop, presumably so buyers might be introduced to new shows they'll also want to own on DVD. The Prisoner, Champions, Saint, Strange Report, Departmen S etc. episodes were all very good, some excellent, but I was disturbed to see 'Just for the Record' as the example of the wonderful Randall and Hopkirk (deceased).

This has always been my least favourite episode, for a number of reasons. R & H was always tongue in cheek, with larger than life characters and eccentrics to rival some sitcoms. Here, however, the villains are simply ridiculous - Ronald Radd, with type cast delusions of grandeur, and two very rough looking heavies who are supposedly Lords. As well as this, we have some of the very worst imposed images ever seen, even for a 60s show, when the villains are in a boat supposedly on the Thames. Jeff acts even more stupidly than normal, turning his back on the femme fatal so she can change her clothes (obviously, she hits him) and ignoring Marty and the case so he can chase the women he's supposed to be protecting. Which is another, slightly distasteful, thing about this episode. These 60s shows rarely miss the opportunity to show a woman in a bikini, but here things are taken to a new level as minutes of footage are devoted to a (plot-wise) superfluous Beauty contest. The final car chase also ends on a real anti-climax.

That's not to say this episode is plain awful - no episode of R & H is a complete loss. Danny Green (One Round in 'The Ladykillers') is of interest as one of the thugs (it was also his last screen role)and there is some good fire footage. The story goes that the film lot itself caught fire and that all the crews rushed out to get some material - the same fire appears in an episode of The Champions.

2/10
