Storyline

The Saint is a modern day Robin Hood of sorts. He steals from rich criminals (gangsters and the like) and keeps the loot for himself. And he usually manages to get the rich criminals put behind bars after he's stolen their goods. Of course, Chief Inspector Claude Eustace Teal regards him as a common thief, regardless of who he steals from, so the Saint must always stay one step ahead of the doggedly persistent Inspector Teal. Fortnately, his wit, charm, and savoir faire make this a fairly easy task, and the series chronicles his various exploits. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Trivia

A version of the car story seen elsewhere says that Jaguar were indeed requested to supply the (then new) E type as an ideal "typically British" steed for Simon Templar, also typically British in the early sixties, Jaguar were bedeviled with strikes and parts supply, and could not deliver on time. Commencement date was looming and finally Roger Moore volunteered his personal car, the now famed Volvo P1800, although stylish it was hardly the racy image needed (post production gave it the exciting exhaust note). For Volvo it was a godsend - the P1800 had been selling sluggishly in the UK, suddenly it was "cool" and sales rocketed and as a result production was extended past the formerly planned finish date. On the rare occasions the vehicle was actually on location on "real" streets it was technically illegal as the "ST 1" licence plate was registered to another vehicle (the cops turned a blind eye).

Classic Cult Action
14 September 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Forget the average Saint movie starring Val Kilmer from the 90's. If you want to see the definitive Simon Templar, then check out this fantastic action show starring a pre-007 Roger Moore.

The show was consistently good throughout as The Saint travelled to locations such as Paris to battle scum such as murderers and robbers. Accompanying him was beautiful women as he raced round in his car coming to blows with the bad guys. Like most shows of that era, it was very tongue-in-cheek.

And I'd be committing a crime if I didn't mention Moore's eyebrow raising each episode. As for the theme tune, it was unforgettable.

Given the absolute rubbish that is show on TV nowadays, I would urge young fans to check The Saint out.
