Overview

Synopsis

Death Has a Bad Reputation
Set in England and Europe, Death Has a Bad Reputation stars Alan Howard as a crack British espionage agent. Howard breaks and twists the rules to bring terrorist Tony Lo Bianco to justice. The quest is as much personal as professional: Howard's son has just been seriously injured in a terrorist attack. Pamela Villoresi and Elizabeth Hurley costar in this fast-moving, thriftily produced thriller. One of the first of many TV movies made to order for the USA Cable Network, Death Has a Bad Reputation debuted on March 14, 1991. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Price of the Bride
In this espionage thriller, American and British operatives team up to learn the real reason behind a KGB officer's defection. The two sides suspect that it's all part of an elaborate assassination conspiracy. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

A Little Piece of Sunshine
Sunshine, a sunny Carribean island, is a little-known haven for organized crime, drug running, and murder. When a private investigator (Philip Michael Thomas) arrives to investigate the mysterious death of a British governer, he finds himself at odds with the Cuban Secret Police, the Miami Homicide Sqaud, and the mob itself. His only hope for escape lies in the hands of an eccentric island hermit played by Lauren Bacall. This British made-for-TV thriller was distributed by Nova Entertainment, Inc, and originally aired in 1994. A Little Piece of Sunshine was directed by J. Cellan-Jones, and also includes actors Chris Cooper and Larry Lamb. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Just Another Secret
In this made-for-cable espionage adventure, a U.S. espionage agent's look into the disappearance of a colleague stationed in East Berlin leads to his uncovering a conspiracy to murder a prominent Soviet leader. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

A Casualty of War
Frederick Forsyth's novel is the basis for this made-for-television movie about British agents attempting to halt arms-smuggling between the IRA (Irish Republican Army) and Libya. ~ Kristie Hassen, Rovi

Pride and Extreme Prejudice
Pride and Extreme Prejudice was first seen January 17, 1990, on the USA Cable TV network. Brian Dennehy is atypically but effectively cast as an ageing CIA agent headquartered in West Germany. Dennehy has recently recovered from a nervous breakdown, and as a result he falls under the deadly scrutiny of both the CIA and the KGB. The weary "mole" is sent on a mission in the Eastern sector from which neither side expects him to return--in fact, they're hoping he won't. Just a tad outdated by late-breaking world events, Pride and Extreme Prejudice was written directly for television by Frederick Forsyth. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
