During it's run this show appeared under various titles. Under the Foreign Intrigue title, it starred Jerome Thor for two seasons. After that, James Daly took over and the title became Overseas Adventure. The fourth season saw Gerald Mohr take the lead under yet another title, Cross Current. See more »
A few of remember the halcyon days of early TV when there were a few good shows. This show set in post-WW2 Europe was one of them. The characters were more than paste-board cut-outs and the situations actually were thought provoking. Daly was consistently good and I always looked forward to seeing it. His walk down those long steps in his rain coat seemed to spark the metaphor of descending into another adventure. Alas, when I look at the garbage being foisted off on viewers today and compare these mindless, glitzy no-brainers, replete with CAG and ridiculous plots, I rejoice that I was around when shows like Foreign Intrigue and Richard Boone's Repertory Theater were being aired. They are missed sorely, believe me.
