Divorced James Greyson Culver (Robert Wagner) was an American-based insurance investigator for a renowned English firm (a la Lloyd’s of London) called Lime Street. Edward Wingate (John Standing) was his British colleague.


Their adventures featured exotic locales, dastardly crimes, beautiful princesses and thoroughbred horses, among other things.

Culver raised the horses – along with his two daughters, 13-year-old Elizabeth (Samantha Smith) and 8-year-old Margaret Ann (Maia Brewton) – on a farm in Virginia, with some help from his debonair father, Henry (Lew Ayres).

Production ended prematurely when young co-star Samantha Smith died in a plane crash during a break in filming.
