A Bland Made-for-Television Mini-Series
6 April 2020 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This film begins with a famous Russian singer by the name of "Katrina Petrovna" (Joan Collins) arriving by train to Monte Carlo just before the German invasion of Belgium and the Netherlands. While there she meets an Italian general by the name of "Properi" (Philip Madoc) and begins to have a relationship with him for the sole purpose of obtaining whatever information he may have that might be useful to British Intelligence. As it so happens, there are other people in Monte Carlo who she meets along the way with one particular novelist by the name of "Harry Price" (George Hamilton) who seems intent upon winning her favor regardless of her repeated rejections of him. Meanwhile, as the war progresses other characters emerge who have various other agendas with a German Gestapo officer named "Major Pabst" (Peter Vaughn) being the principal antagonist for all concerned. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a rather uneven mini-series for the most part which benefited from a decent plot and a good cast but suffered somewhat due to its rather bland and generic made-for-television format. Likewise, it could have used a bit more mystery and suspense as well. Be that as it may, while certainly not one of the better spy thrillers ever made, it managed to pass the time fairly well and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
