    From Wikipedia:

    The Persuaders! is an action-comedy series starring Tony Curtis and Roger Moore, produced by ITC Entertainment, and initially broadcast on ITV and ABC in 1971. The show has been called “the last major entry in the cycle of adventure series that began 11 years earlier with Danger Man in 1960”, as well as “the most ambitious and most expensive of Sir Lew Grade’s international action adventure series”. The Persuaders! was filmed in Britain, France, and Italy between May 1970 and June 1971.

    The typeface used for the opening titles including the series logo is Dreamline (Mecanorma, 1969). The unicase face in the style of Alfred Roller lettering is used with a modified P. It also appears on many other things related to the series, from the cover of the soundtrack (1972) to more recent DVD packaging. Shown below are the covers of various international TV tie-in paperbacks, written by Frederick E. Smith. Paul Woods posted a collection of various additional items.
