Similar To The Saint
11 October 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The Toff bears remarkable similarities to the Saint.he is very much the aristocrat.He sails close to the wind at times.He has a comedy aide.He always knows better than the police and of course he always ends up right and with a woman on his arm.It has to be said that the plot is rather convoluted and even though I watched it twice I still could not quite make out the plot.Probably because in one scene Valentine Dyall tells you what he thinks has happened at such a speed that you rather loose the thread of what he is saying.John Bentley gives a good impression of George sanders,though not as laconic or laid back.There is a lot of action and murders aplenty so even if like me you cannot quite work out what is happening,nevertheless less you can still enjoy the action.
