To Catch a King
In this espionage thriller that tries in its own way to emulate "Casablanca," Robert Wagner plays an American who owns a Lisbon nightclub and Teri Garr is a slightly dippy chanteuse who has stumbled across a Nazi plot to kidnap the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, living at the time (1942) in Portugal. Together they set out to try to thwart the plan as a wily German general closes in on them. Despite this HBO film's starring role going to a white-suited, Bogart-like Wagner, much of the focus was on Garr racing across Europe in a tight skirt and six-inch spike heels with the Gestapo in hot pursuit. The source novel was by Harry Patterson, which is the pen-name of Jack Higgins, author of "The Eagle Has Landed".
