Classic TV: Raffles – Anthony Valentine – #2 –

About the series

Raffles was a 1977 television adaptation of the A. J. Raffles stories by Ernest William Hornung. The series was produced by Yorkshire Television and written by Philip Mackie. The episodes were largely faithful adaptations of the stories in the books, though occasionally two stories would be merged to create one episode such as “The Gold Cup” which featured elements from both “A Jubilee Present” and “The Criminologist’s Club”. 

About this episode

Brash and crude, Reuben Rosenthall is a real “rough diamond:” a self-made millionaire who wears his wealth in the most ostentatious way possible. In other words, he’s an irresistible target for Raffles, if not for the more hesitant Bunny. But as the friends find out, Rosenthall has a trick or two up his own sleeve.
