A French Saint film starring Felix Marten as Simon Templar. The film begins with a gangster being chased on foot by the police. As he tries to make his getaway he is struck by a passerby and falls. The gangster is then shot dead by the police.
Fast forward to a year later and the passerby who helped the police kill the gangster has received threatening letters. The passerby it turns out is a very wealthy man who is afraid that a friend of the gangster has marked him for death. The wealthy man then contacts Templar, who he wants to hire to protect him from an unknown assassin. The Saint is sceptical but agrees to take the job for a hefty fee.
The film has a breezy quality, like the German Edgar Wallace films. It's fun and stylish. The print I saw was the English dubbed version and ran just over 80 minutes. Also The Saint's name was changed from Templar to Thompson.
