Synopsis
Billed as novelist Alistair MacLean's first original television thriller, this tale finds flamboyant master criminal Keir Dullea and several specialists staging an audacious scheme to capture the Eiffel Tower and hold as hostage one of its visitors, the U.S. President's mother (veteran British actress Celia Johnson), while Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., head of a UN security force, tries to foil the plot with the aid of Peter Fonda (his TV-movie debut) and Billy Dee Williams. Rachel Roberts (as Fairbanks' assistant) had her final role here (although a later TV appearance in "The Wall", filmed earlier, followed in 1981).
