Based on an unfinished novel by Jack London, this epic comedy-thriller romps across an Edwardian Europe of anarchists, spies, and murderers as the effortlessly elegant Diana Rigg crosses swords with the dangerously charming Oliver Reed as civilisation teeters on the brink of WWI. Telly Savalas and Curd Jurgens provide villainous support. Introduced by John J Johnston (UCL Institute of Archaeology). Screened as part of the Archaeology and Espionage season.
