Set against an appealingly sunny Sicilian backdrop, the film finds Simon Templar, an elegant thief and ethical busybody, outraged when a British banker is murdered after he recognizes an old colleague-turned-Mafia kingpin.
Tyrannical but ailing tycoon Charles Richmond becomes very fond of his attractive Italian nurse, Maria. The nurse, in turn, falls in love with Charles' ne'er-do-well nephew Anthony, who plots ways to gain control of his uncle's fortune.
I love The Pursaders but only gave this "movie" a 3, strange? Not at all.
When I purchased this movie on DVD I was expecting a movie, but it's not. Instead you'll find two separate tv-episodes where the first episode has its end after texts removed, and the second episode has its titles (including the marvelous theme song) removed. Basicly, this is what I call a hoax.
The first episode is even a cheap shot episode, all scenes take place indoors. The second one is a little better and here you'll find the highlight of this "movie", a car chase with Danny Wilde's Ferrari Dino 246GT.
