Templar speaks the cabby's phone number, then dials it. It's Columbus 5-1098; on a rotary dial phone, 0, 9 and 8 are all full or nearly full turns of the dial, but when he dials it, it's all small turns until the last digit. See more »

The original.
28 May 1999 | by (Edmonton, Canada) – See all my reviews

Although many may argue that the later portrayers of the Saint (Roger Moore, Ian Ogilvy) are better, one has to admit that, for a start, this film is a good start. Hayward has the essence of Templar's quirky humour, and is a good actor in his own right. A must see for any die-hard Saint fan.
