About This Series:  In premise, this was very much like an early version of TVs "Mission: Impossible", which first aired two years later after this series began.  A crack team, who happened to be relatives, traveled the world fighting injustice by using incredible schemes.

    The cousins Fleming and St. Clair were con-men that were so successful they no longer needed to con.  So they used their talents for the cause of good in taking down marks that deserved punishment very, very much.  Boyer was the top brains of the outfit, with Niven being a very close second.

    It's a shame this series was in black-and-white, because such a worldly series deserved color.  Maybe that's one of the reasons it didn't last.  It was certainly a very well written and acted show.  "The Rogues" had the right blend of comedy, action, adventure, and mystery to make it excellent viewing, even today.  It was like watching a weekly version of James Bond, or a Charlie Chan movie, or a Basil Rathbone era Sherlock Holmes movie.  Incredibly likable, intelligent, and fun!
