A largely British cast appears in the 90-minute American TV drama Agent for the Plaintiff. Glenn Howard (Gene Barry), the publisher of Crime magazine, is the defendent in a libel suit. As the trial progresses, it appears as though Howard is the victim of a conspiracy hatched by his own attorney, the lovely-but-lethal Bethany Cromwell (Honor Blackman), and plaintiff Harold Wyler (Maurice Evans). Susan St. James, Brian Bedford, Murray Matheson, and Anthony Caruso also figure prominently in the proceedings. Agent for the Plaintiff premiered March 21, 1969, as an episode of the weekly TVer The Name of the Game.
