Modesty Blaise started as a 1960s comic strip and was later developed into novels and three films. Modesty Blaise is a wealthy, buxom, curvaceous young woman of a mysterious background who, although at times a criminal, also works for the British Secret Service.
This story is based on the on the novel “Modesty Blaise: The Silver Mistress”.
Sir Gerald Tarrant, head of a secret service department in the British Government, and good friend of Modesty Blaise, is being driven by his chauffeur along a narrow road on the edge of the gorge of the Tarn River in S. France. His chauffeur stops to help two nuns change a tire on their car, and Sir Gerald is taken prisoner – by the nuns, no less.
Quinn provides the missing information that convinces Modesty that Sir Gerald has been kidnapped. (Until now everyone had believed that Sir Gerald had died together with his chauffeur when his car went tumbling down into the Tarn River.) Modesty and Willie Garvin have by chance already determined the probable location of Sir Gerald’s captivity: Chateau Lancieux in the foothills of the Pyrenees in S. France.
A hasty rescue mission is set in action. Modesty and Willie gain access to the chateaux via a deep cave, but on entering into the basement they are captured by the formidable Mr. Sexton, who prides himself on being the world’s greatest unarmed combat man. Now Modesty and Willie are scheduled to die at Mr. Sexton’s hand, one at a time, to further the process of softening Sir Gerald up for interrogation.
