Did You Know?


Olivia Mela, who appears as the girl in the purple bikini in "Overture" and the title sequence, appears here as well, three times, twice in a bikini, fleetingly in the Cannes swimming pool, seen from afar, and then as one of the lovely passersby in close-up. Soon after, she is the girl on the moped almost running Danny over outside the bank. She doesn't speak English, which is why she couldn't land a bigger part. See more »


When they are playing snooker, Angie pots one red ball, leaving at least 3 more reds, before potting the green. He then proceeds to pot all the colours without potting the remaining reds or taking the green out of the pocket to return it to the table. See more »


Lord Brett Sinclair: Forgive my rare sincerity, but everything passes and changes. Even old friends...

Kirsten Lindholm, pretty model, luscious hair, but mute?

This episode shows that it can be a bad idea to cast a model as an actress. Apparently, that is the case with Kirsten Lindholm. I've since researched her here on IMDb, and she has numerous other credits, not many, but enough to show that she must be able to speak English if she was cast in all those other appearances, yet here she acts exactly like she is either unable to speak in front of a camera or unable to speak English (which is the most likely, given that Olivia Mela also appears herein speaking one line of French) but the result really is kinda weird, making her character kinda lame despite that shampoo commercial hairstyle. A great pity. Well, if I was a director back then, I'd have wanted her in my movie as well, I am not faulting their choice, indeed not, for she is very pretty. But her acting ability? Ooh weeee... She just stands there, suppressing giggles, I can see, she looks like she is going to burst out laughing immediately afterwards. Ma cherie, this be laid down for posterity, parlez vous? Zee little French chickie, she shoulda been taken firmer in hand, non?

Kidding. Funning. I'm not complaining. I'm glad there was a pretty girl in the script. Who wants a Shakespearean actress if you could play around with a blonde French dolly-bird?
