Good, clean fun for fans of Charteris's Saint, 3 December 1998
Author: anonymous

Stitched together from a two-part story in the 1978 Return of the Saint TV series starring Ian Ogilvy, this is good, clean fun for fans of Charteris's Saint. Ogilvy is ably assisted by a cast of British TV stalwarts and US-born Gayle Hunnicutt as a woman under threat. Not great, but better than most similar offerings. Ogilvy looks great in the role (it's a pity he didn't take the Saint to the big screen) and the story does get quite tense. Certainly more enjoyable than the recent Val Kilmer attempt to rejuvenate the series. Apparently Leslie Charteris can be seen in the background of the "less important" scenes, but I've not yet noticed him.
