Editor's NoteLong before his turn in the popular comedy mystery series HART TO HART, actor Robert Wagner enjoyed another multi-season starring role - this one in the espionage series IT TAKES A THIEF (1968-70). He played Alexander Mundy, a hotshot cat burglar turned operative for an intelligence agency known as the "SIA." His new spy role involved globetrotting, seducing gorgeous women, and embezzling huge sums in the name of the United States government. Wagner was only one of two regulars on the program, alongside Malachi Throne as Noah Bane, the federal agent who offers Alexander full amnesty for his thefts in return for his willingness to take on SIA assignments. The original program lasted three seasons and 66 episodes plus a pilot. All of the installments appear in this box set.
