The Protectors_Bagman Title Shot

The daughter of a wealthy socialite is kidnapped and held for ransom.  Madame Anderson fears for her daughters life but must not attract the polices attention, so she contacts The Protectors.  The ransom note leads the team on a chase throughout Copenhagen.  Harry poses a threat to the kidnapper so the instructions given require that only the Contessa can deliver the ransom money. Harry must find where the young kidnapped lady is before the the kidnappers loses his patience and kills her. Information from a local fisherman leads Harry and Paul to an old fort and a standoff.

Personal Synopsis

A simple episode of kidnapping and ransom. The story could have easily been expanded into a fuller and more dramatic affair. Copenhagen looks great in 1973 which is one of the highlights of this episode. All in all an easy going kidnapping that left me wanting more.

The Baron Episode 16: The Island

The Baron The Island Title Shot

John and Cordelia are put under armed guard awaiting the captains orders. The only alternative for the captain is to kill John and Cordelia since the captain exposed the plans to take down a space shuttle. The SOS radio call that John made was overheard and the Macao authorities mentioned that Mannering got on the freight ship so the US authorities are now interested to see why the mystery. Mannering sees that his time may be nearly up and decides to try to make a break and the ships destination seems like the best option for escape. But first they have to elude the captors. On the island, the crew of the freight get to their intended purpose all while still sending out search parties for John and Cordelia. Mannering needs to find a way to thwart the plans of the captain and saves the lives of the astronauts in the space capsule. How will they be able to do it?

Personal Synopsis

The second episode in the two part series has all the elements of a great mystery. Its easy to see why ITC edited these episodes together for Baron movie. It great to see a show with ships, a rogue captain, the US space program and a hunt on a remote island. Brilliant!
