    The Callan film is excellent, well worth a look.

    Its nearer to the book "A Magnum for Schneider" than the Armchair Theatre production was.

    The Mouse That Roared was very good indeed, Jean Seberg is how can I put it.... easy on the eye. I always thought this was an American film with Jack Arnold at the helm?
