Trivia

The filmed sequences, presenting Danny Wilde and Brett Sinclair, in the opening credits, were not filmed expressly for said credits, but were taken from various early episodes (all of them in southern Europe), mainly The Persuaders!: Overture (1971) (the two men racing their sports cars, Tony Curtis and Sir Roger Moore distracted by a blonde in a bikini walking between them, Brett flirting with two beauties) and The Persuaders!: Powerswitch (1971) (the water-skiing shots, and Danny shown as a businessman at work at a desk).

Quotes

[Brett's Uncle Angus has just been squashed flat by a falling courtyard door, the latest in a string of murders of Brett's relatives]
Kate: Poor Uncle Angus. Meanest man I ever met. Probably worth millions.
Danny Wilde: Imagine. All that money and he died flat.
Lord Brett Sinclair: Well, uh, as someone once said, "To lose one relative is misfortune. To lose two is carelessness."
Kate: Oscar Wilde.
Lord Brett Sinclair: Thank you. But I have lost six. Which is absolute, downright negligence!

never mind the plots, this is how tv should be
22 August 2002 | by grunselSee all my reviews

I dont think i have seen Tony Curtis so happy as he appears to be in this role. Whether its 'acting' happy or not, his and Moore's relationship lights up the screen, bringing cheerful escapist television into any living room.
