"The name's Tully," doesn't have quite the same ring to it as "Bond, JAMES Bond!"
Still the producers of this pilot telemovie (for a joint-venture Oz/UK series) seemed to think it would stir the public's interest. They even enticed Brit actor Anthony Valentine, big-name star from the long running (but then defunct) COLDITZ TV series, to take the lead.
TULLY was commissioned during a period when paying audiences couldn't get enough of cold-war intrigue and spy melodramas. Shame then that all Valentine had to do here as a `special agent' was to rummage through a few clues and bodies, to find some missing art-works.
I saw this excessively average movie shortly after it came out and like many others, wondered how much they had paid Valentine to contribute to this under-achiever. Not embarrassingly bad, just terminally dull.
