McGill's pistol, in almost all of the episodes, is a Smith & Wesson 39. The 39 was designed in hopes of being a replacement for the U.S. Army's Colt 1911 during Service Pistol Trials held in 1954. The S&W 39 is a 9mm double action semi-automatic, while the Colt 1911 is a .45 single action semi-automatic. While the Army decided to stick with the Colt, some U.S. Special Forces in the Vietnam War carried the S&W 39. So conceivably McGill may have trained with the weapon and been issued one by "American Intelligence" before he was scapegoated out. See more »
Man in a suitcase follows the exploits of an American in London and Europe after her get kicked out of the CIA. I first came across this show on a day time TV run years ago and watched it expecting something cheesy. I was very pleasantly proved wrong and having been trying to buy or tape as many episodes as I could get my hand on ever since.
Although produced by Lew Grade's ITC company, it shares little in common with stablemates such as "Champions", "DangerMan" or even "The Prisoner". What made it different was the quality of the plots, the acting (especially Richard Bradford's)and the way it managed to combine elements of glamour and gritty realism...oh, and the title music (although all ITC shows had good title music and sequences).
An excellent series.
