Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally telecast February 16, 1972, the 60-minute Five Miles to Midnight is an episode of the Anglo-American TV adventure series The Persuaders. Tony Curtis and Roger Moore star as Danny Wilde and Lord Brett Sinclair, two millionaire playboys who double as private detectives. Laurence Naismith costars as Judge Fulton, their elderly mentor. In this installment, Danny and Brett get mixed up with an American mobster (Robert Hutton), on the lam from a hit man. The boys are aided and abetted by troublesome photojournalist Joan Collins. Filmed on location in the Italian Alps, Five Miles to Midnight was released to video in the early 1980s to capitalize on Ms. Collins' Dynasty fame.
