Straightforward Sleuthing 
      (click to see category list)An old established British arms manufacturer falls under suspicion when their weapons begin showing up illegally in Africa. Then, when several bids to take over the company fail, the majority shareholders start turning up dead. So naturally Steed helps Cathy acquire a majority stockholding...


A satisfying story does not necessarily have to be outrageous—just well-written and well-executed. This relatively conventional tale really hits the mark, despite the odd technical blooper. There's a very nice twist regarding the character Henry Cade (played by Avengers veteran Ronald Radd), and a wonderful tag scene wherein two men vie for Cathy's attention.


Michael Whittaker received credit for designing Honor Blackman's wardrobe.
