Danger Man - The Honeymooners television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is sent to small island nation in the Far East when a couple’s honeymoon getaway ends in murder. With the husband (Ronald Allen) jailed and facing execution, Drake attempts to pry details from the uncooperative bride (Sally Bazely) about the unfortunate night when a local man was shot while mistakenly entering their motel room.

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. Drake (Patrick McGoohan) looks into the murder of a U.S. soldier on leave in Munich who had knowledge of a secret missile project.

While initially suspicious of her, especially after he is attacked by two men following their date, Drake soon discovers the woman has nothing to hide (other than a disapproving father and a weakness for American soldiers). It turns out the soldier’s death has nothing to do with the girl, or the soldier’s top secret clearance, but only with a single photograph the man took around the city that someone is willing to kill for.
