Napoleon Doble: @ 4DK

My knowledge of Filipino cinema is admittedly poor. I have heard of the Tony Falcon, Agent 44 series, starring Tony Ferrer, but I have never actually seen one.

For the series of The Man From UNCLE books, that [...]

The Technological Hierarchy for what?

Over the last couple of weeks I have had a bit of fun with a few of my posts. The first was when I reviewed The Man From UNCLE book, The Affair Of The Gunrunner’s Gold.
