It Takes a Thief: A Case of Red Turnips

Al has to crash a foreign film festival to steal the only copy of a premiere movie, The Red Turnips. The director has inadvertently captured a major SIA operation on film in the background, and Al has to get the film before enemy agents obtain it and try to identify the compromised agents.

This is a colorful, amusing episode with Noel Harrison as a film producer with a one-reel epic entered in a film festival. Unfortunately, the film is a portrait album of all our intelligence agents in Sector 3 and Robert Wagner has 48 hours to get it from Harrison. Only the bad guys kidnap Malachi Throne, and they give Wagner 10 hours to get it for them. The film festival background means lots of pretty girls in bikinis and a masquerade ball, which Wagner attends dressed as a thief. . .
