With glossy and glamorous European locations and a sense of high camp The Persuaders! is rightly fondly remembered as a natural successor to Moore's own 'The Saint'. Moore and Curtis spark well off one another with great on-screen chemistry, whilst there's plenty of witty and funny dialogue to enjoy along the way. Of course there's an almost obligatory punch-up at some stage every episode that recalls the best and funniest elements of the original 'Batman' TV Series. Witty dialogue is symptomatic of the whole, with well-written scripts and usually fine, tight story lines. If you've never seen this series or have fond memories of it this collection of all 24 episodes is well worth investigation. Sadly they don't make them like this anymore.
Roger looks so young and such a pretty boy! G*t!
Anyway, I think you have to be fan of his to enjoy this fully, as compared to modern TV its pretty corny/Carry On ish. I think it was fashionable at the time. Theres some good humour in it but the quality although very high for the period does not compare to today and non fans would probably say its pretty rubbish! The acting, in particular Tony Curtis's can be a bit ropey, maybe its the production/editing at fault. If you have watched Dads Army you will have noticed the ropey acting soemtimes especially with Capt Mannering, its abit like that. Same era I guess and same production values.
The stories are good and its great to see lots of famous actors and actresses in their prime all filmed around the South of France (and Pinewood).
If you love Rog and you think he's the best Bond (I do - the tongue in cheek style) then you'll enjoy the Persuaders.
