Ripoff of The Saint., 29 July 2007
Author: perwilvil from United States

Boy is this show appalling, and this is unusual for ITC classics. Take a minor league American star like Steve Forrest to appeal to American audiences (supposedly), and set him up as a wealthy adventurer a la Simon Templar. It might have worked if the stories were any good, but they really weren't, and the production values were extremely cheap. The Saint had cheap production values, but this could easily be overlooked with Roger Moore's charisma and interesting stories. Danger Man/Secret Agent had comparatively high production values with some nice location/second unit work, and was probably done for similar money. If you're going to watch an ITC show, try The Saint, Secret Agent, or The Protectors.

But see for yourself. Anyone want to buy a half used DVD set of The Baron?
