    Adventurer (The): The Complete Series




    The world is full of adventure!

    Golden-Globe winner Gene Barry (Burke’s Law, War of the Worlds) stars as the debonair film star and jet-setting, multi-millionaire businessman Gene Bradley. With an eye for the ladies and a nose for trouble, his multiple interests plunge him into dynamic adventures with every new episode.

    This fondly-remembered and much sought-after series was created by Monty Berman and Dennis Spooner (THE CHAMPIONS, RANDALL AND HOPKIRK (DECEASED)) and co-stars Barry Morse (SPACE:1999), Stuart Damon (THE CHAMPIONS) and Catherine Schell (SPACE: 1999) as well as featuring excellent performances from guest stars such as Freddie Jones, Stephanie Beacham, Andre Morell, Burt Kwouk, George Sewell, Ed Bishop, Patrick Mower and Sylvia Syms.

    This set includes exclusively recorded contributions from Catherine Schell, Stuart Damon and Barry Morse, a gallery of title elements struck from the original 35mm negatives, as well as extensive image galleries and a commemorative booklet. Although The Adventurer was filmed and distributed on 16mm, the main titles originated on 35mm. These surviving 35mm materials are presented here for the first time.

    Don't forget the music!

    One of the best things about this series was the main titles instrumental theme. This superb piece of music was composed by John Barry, one of the greatest film composers of the 1960s and 70s. His unique vision and style played a large role in the evolution of the medium, especially due to his amazing work on the James Bond series. Barry essentially created the 60s cinematic "Spy Boom" sound, and for more than a decade this permeated all aspects of popular instrumental music. Barry also wrote one of the world's best TV themes - THE PERSUADERS. This legendary composition has a "sister" in John's music for THE ADVENTURER. Both tracks will always exist as Barry's superb musical "bookends" for the 007 fad spillover into television. Check it out! You'll love it!
