Did You Know?


The year this episode was broadcast, Honor Blackman was about to make British television history when cast as Cathy Gale in "The Avengers." See more »


The cards supposedly containing gossip were actually actors cue cards. Just before Templar burned them, actors dialogue could be seen for the different parts played. See more »


Simon Templar: Very tricky lad this Vosper. He's found out that most people like reading dirt, so three times weekly, his column dishes it up and by mixing a few grains of truth into a mess of innuendo and smut, Floyd Vosper pretends to report the load on celebrities. I don't know what you feel about it, but to me, it is like a dirty kid scrawling filthy words on a backyard fence.

Anthony Dawson steals the show
29 September 2009 | by ingemar-4See all my reviews

Anthony Dawson as the annoying Floyd Vosper is the big star of this show. Every line he has is sharp, witty and evil, and he backs it up visually. In particular, Dawson vs Moore is great!

Otherwise, the story is a classic crime story, with a considerable amount of Agatha Cristie style. Just like in Christie stories, it is not about action but about individuals and relationships.

With Anthony Dawson, Honor Blackman and Roger Moore in the same show, it is certainly a must-see for Bond fans. (Blackman was Pussy Galore in "Goldfinger", and Dawson was both professor Dent in "Dr No" and was Blofeld in both "From Russia with love" and "Thunderball".)
