In this TV movie the Nazis set out to kidnap the Duke of Windsor, and the only ones who can save him are Robert Wagner, a Bogart-like American expatriate nightclub owner in Lisbon, and Teri Garr, a blues singer. This romantic adventure is predictable in both story and characterization. John Standing is the Duke and Barbara (Valley of the Dolls) Parkins is a dignified Wallis Simpson. Here's looking at Casablanca, kid.
