The Persuaders

What do you get when you combine impressive French Riviera settings, early 70s fashion, Roger Moore & Tony Curtis, fast cars, beautiful girls, a mystery/action plot, and John Barry soundtrack? The answer is "The Persuaders", a British TV series that was broadcasted in late 1971 and early 1972.

This series depicts the mystery solving adventures of Lord Brett Sinclair & Danny Wilde, portrayed by Roger Moore & Tony Curtis respectively. Even though it lasted only one season, "The Persuaders" are remembered by many till this day.

Below a photo of the duo, in which Roger Moore's double breasted jacket brings to my mind what was recently shown in Milan & Paris. On the other hand Tony Curtis opts for a classic and elegant combination of black and light brown.

Well it only lasted a few months in the early 70s, supposedly it didn't have high ratings despite the interesting plot and locations.

I completly agree about Roger Moore. His Bond movies are among my favorite, after Sean Connery's of course.
