Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

French Riviera Car Race – Ferrari versus Aston Martin

Written by Chris Alm • August 25th, 2009

The classic car race between Roger Moore and Tony Curtis in the first episode of ultra cool TV-series The Persuaders. Moore in a Aston Martin and Curtis in a Ferrari, they race from the airport in Nice to the casino in Monte Carlo while the song ‘Gotta Get Away‘ by Jackie Trent and Tony Hatch sets the perfect jet set mood.

This scene really defines the mood of the whole series which is undoubtedly a fine piece of classic television history. What do you daydream about?
