Roger Moore And Tony Curtis Excel
14 September 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

I have to admit that Roger Moore is one of my favourite actors. He was brilliant in The Saint and I cannot forget his contribution to the James Bond series. In this show, he excelled again along with Tony Curtis.

Anyone who lived during the era this was made knows what to expect. Fights, women, action, crime etc. Moore as Lord Brett Sinclair and Tony Curtis as Danny Wilde looked like they were having a great time as they had fun with beautiful women and battled the usual stereotypical villains.

Fans of The Saint, The Avengers and similar shows will enjoy this. It's just a shame that this only ran for about 23 episodes.
