The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 22: The Solid Gold Hearse

It is night and in the cemetery grave robbers strike. Soon, a mountain of gold bullion is shipped out of the United Kingdom and Gene Bradley is on a movie set on the other side of the world. Mr Parminter and his team will have to take on this case without Gene’s help. The trail of  dead gold takes Parminter across western Europe to ultimately face off with the leaders in the illegal gold trade.

Personal Synopsis

Gold bars, probably one of the worst things to steal off anyone however when there are hundreds of them, it would be a difficult choice. Gene Bradley is on location shooting a movie when the inevitable gold bullion goes missing ploy. The lack of screen time for Gene Barry shows the behind the scenes tension between Gene and pretty much everyone else. The lack of screen time also means that Barry Morse, Catherine Schell and Garrick Hagon team up to retrieve the gold and a greater part of the storyline.
