Henry plays "Frank", a code
breaking expert, in
this episode of the Gerry Anderson "real action" series. Main characters are American
Entrepreneur Harry Rule (Robert Vaughn), English Aristocrat The Countessa
di Contini (Nyree Dawn Porter) and French Gadget meister Paul Buchet (Tony
Anholt). Their mission is to protect the innocent and apprehend the guilty and
form part of a world-wide network of Secret Agents.
Harry (Robert Vaughn) and Caroline (Nyree
Dawn Potter) are hired by Sir Walter Crediton (Fredrick Treaves), to ensure a "wild-child" daughter is safely
returned to her family. They learn, in the process, that the daughter
(Susan, played by Margareta Lee) is
passing coded numeric messages detailing car license plate numbers
involved in an international drugs-smuggling ring. Harry tracks the
head of the operation, Mario Giocovetti (Peter Arne), for a final
confrontation, where Mario does the decent thing and commits suicide over
his half-size snooker table.
