Breezy dialog, fast-moving plot in enjoyable comedy-mystery
13 September 2012 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The action starts quickly: Simon Templar receives a phone call from a nervous stranger who mentions a million pounds. The doorbell rings. Templar opens the door and a man falls into his arms. The dying man hangs on just long enough to say something about "the Tiger" and the city of Baycombe….

The pace never slows down much from there, as the Saint takes a cottage in Baycombe and digs into a mystery involving a shipment of stolen gold bars, a mysterious mastermind known as the Tiger, and a group of ordinary-looking Baycombe residents mixed up in it all.

A game cast maintains a lively pace and a light tone in this enjoyable adventure. Wylie Watson is Horace, the Saint's new butler, a mystery lover looking for some excitement in a job. Jean Gillie is Pat Holm, the girl on the case, also eager for adventure and sporting a hairdo that's always falling across her face so she has to keep shaking it out of her eyes. Horace and Pat team up, thinking they'll catch the crooks on their own while the Saint is off working with…

Gordon McLeod, returning as Inspector Teal, also in Baycombe on the missing gold case (and trying unsuccessfully to work undercover as a vacationing professor). As usual, Teal is torn between arresting the Saint and asking for his help.

Hugh Sinclair is more than passable in his second and final go-around as Simon Templar. Sinclair's Saint is breezy, lanky and a fast talker. And confident—like when he's working a roomful of suspects and a policeman tells him, "I'll have to ask you to come along with me, Mr. Templar," and he just says, "Oh, I think not," and goes right on talking….

Overall, there's not a whole lot to it but it's certainly pleasant enough.

Note: I always like watching movie thieves handle stolen gold bricks. Movie gold bars are really heavy!
