Man of the World

Show Summary

Welcome to the Man of the World guide at TV.com. Freelance photo-journalist Michael Strait had been with the OSS during World War ll, so he knew how to handle himself in a jam. Strait's assignments took him all over Europe, occasionally aided by companion Maggie McFarlane. Man of the World was an Associated TeleVision production for ITV. Twenty episodes were made in total, and these were eventually syndicated in the U.S.

  • The adventures of a photo-journalist, successful enough to live aboard his own luxury yacht as he travels the world in search of scoops.

    This was - in intention, anyway - the most glamorous of ITV's many efforts to crack the American market at the beginning of the Sixties. They hired a top American TV star - Craig Stevens, a year after he'd finished playing Peter Gunn (ironically, British TV never aired that legendary show); they gave every episode a bigger-than-usual budget; they filmed it in colour, although British TV would remain in black-and-white for another five years; and they went to many exotic locales for filming. They even hired Henry Mancini to compose the theme music, just months after "Breakfast At Tiffany's" had won him two Oscars. But the scripts were the same old drivel, mostly, and the series was a costly flop. The Americans weren't interested.moreless
