Danger Man - The Blue Veil television review

Our Throwback Thursday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. In “The Blue Veil” John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) successfully completes the task that John Rambo fails in Rambo: First Blood Part II. Learning that slave trading is taking place in the Arabian Desert, the United Nations send Drake in undercover to collect photographic proof which could used to bring pressure to bear on the local leaders. Disguised as a drunken slave trader, Drake makes new friends in a local boy (Joseph Cuby) and stranded showgirl (Lisa Gastoni) and new enemies in an underworld figure (Laurence Naismith) who doesn’t like competition. Although he’s unable to help those forced to work in the diamond mines against their will, Drake does make it out with both the showgirl and the proof (completing his mission once again).
