Starring Oliver Reed as John Travolta
25 November 2019 | by davidfiedlerSee all my reviews

Seriously, the resemblance is uncanny...even with an American gangster accent!

Apart from that, this is a very satisfying story line, very believable, and on top of all that...directed by Roger Moore himself! A must see for Saint fans.
