Pre-"Stingray" Stingray?
If you are half the fanatic about Nick Mancuso in "Stingray" that I am , you'll enjoy this earlier outing, if only to watch Mancuso's moves in the spy realm. The scenes on board the plane pitting him against an adversary alone are well worth making the effort to locate and watch this film, and displays a sense of style VERY much in keeping with the later "Stingray" character.... Why Cannel productions doesn't offer this--and even more so, Stingray--on DVD, I cannot imagine. Cannel and Mancuso were a great match; I only regret that more people haven't had the pleasure of seeing their efforts together... If anyone knows of a source of uncut versions of this movie or the Stingray pilot, I'd love to correspond..
