The Avengers
By

Rating
"The Avengers" burst onto televisions screens in the 1960's, and the show's mix of wit, adventure and beautiful women became an instant hit!
Now fifty years on, Marcus Hearn has been granted unparalleled access to the show's production archives and has collected together a fabulous array of material to celebrate the 50th anniversary of "The Avengers."
Lavishly illustrated, with many unpublished stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and snaps from the ABC & LWT private archive, this is a spectacular portrait of the world's best-loved cult action-adventure series, and its classic sequel, The New Avengers.

Reviews

"* "The Avengers exhibited more style and daring than is to be had on all of Milan's runways, and more wit and winks... than the oeuvres of Oscar Wilde and Monty Python combined." - The New York Times * "Exudes more sheer sexuality than American TV has previously handled... It's all high-wire melodrama, good-humoured fetishism and flamboyant self-mockery." - Playboy"
