TV viewers first met secret agent CALLAN in a one-off armchair theatre play
"A Magnum For Schneider", in which the disgraced former top secret agent
is seconded to a government section devoted to the elimination of undesirables -
by whatever means necessary.
Callan's was a violent, bleak world where if you didn't kill first - they
killed you. He was a cold-blooded killer, an outsider - isolated, often in direct
conflict with his superior Hunter, a codename given to all Heads of Section.
So successful was the hit-man with viewers that author James Mitchell was asked
to write a series that went on to become one of the most successful programs in
British TV history running from 1967 to 1972.
Callan made stars of the two central performers, Edward Woodwood who played the
disaffected agent and Russell Hunter, as the snivelling, smelly, petty thief
Lonely, the spy's accomplice.
Made in 1973, this feature film is an expanded rewrite of the first TV episode
in which the disgraced former secret service agent David Callan is given an
opportunity to redeem himself with one more liquidation. His assignment is to
kill a businessman responsible for a number of bombings and gun running, but not
everything goes according to plan.
