Danger Man
S
The Hired Assassin

Sunday, 30th April 1961
 7:30 pm ITV


Charles Frend
Director


Drake impersonates an killer for hire in order to prevent a revolutionary group from assassinating their nation's leader.

Enjoyable inversion of the usual formula, where Drake is helping good people fight their corrupt leaders. Shaps' talkative explosives expert and Frith's crochety antiquarian are the standouts in this one.
