Code Name Diamond Head is a 1977 Made for TV Movie from Quinn Martin's company. It was intended to be the pilot for a series, but the movie failed at convincing the network executives it was worth a series.
The plot, as such, concerns an evil traitor spy who plans to steal a biological nerve agent from the Navy and sell it for 100,000 dollars. It's up to the eponymous agent Diamond Head (so named for the actual place in Hawaii) to stop this evil spy.
Code Name Diamond Head contains the following tropes:
- Boring Failure Hero: It must be very difficult to get competent agents in Hawaii.
- Failed a Spot Check
- Pilot Movie: Painfully so.
- Running Gag: Annoyingly done with owing the boat captain ("Hong Kong") first fifty, then 100 dollars.
- The Seventies
